In Kansas and Missouri, felony convictions can bring significant penalties, including mandatory fines and prison time. Further, conviction results in a permanent and public criminal record. This record can have a significant negative impact on your life and your future, from jeopardizing employment to restricting where you can live.
Although the District Court of Johnson County, Kansas is located in Olathe, Johnson County District Court has exclusive jurisdiciton over State Felony Offenses committed in the cities within Johnson County, including DeSoto, Gardner, Leawood, Lenexa. Mission, Merriam, Olathe, Overland Park, and Prairie Village. Each of these cities may elect to prosecute certain misdemeanr offenses occurring within their city limits, but Municipal Courts do not have jurisdiction over felony matters.
If you are facing felony criminal charges in the District Court of Johnson County, or anywhere in the State of Kansas, contact me, Attorney Paul D. Cramm for experienced and aggressive felony defense. It is your constitutional right to have a lawyer represent you in any criminal proceeding, and it is also your constitutional right to remain silent and not make any incriminating statements about your case. Exercise both Constitutional Rights! Before speaking with the police or before saying anything more, call my office toll free at (913) 322-3265 for a free consultation.
