Scott County had a 44.1% increase in population and a 51.9% increase in employment from 2000 to 2008. It has been one of the fastest growing counties in Minnesota with a population of over 100,000. It has six judges handling a large number of cases, including thousands of criminal matters. A Scott County criminal lawyer needs to know what the county is like and who the players are in the criminal justice system.
A criminal attorney who practices in Scott County should have a wealth of experience in defending individuals on charges such as DWI-DUI, domestic assault, drug-controlled substance, rape and various degrees of criminal sexual conduct, date rape, assault, theft, fraud, embezzlement, white collar, and numerous traffic violations.
A Scott County criminal lawyer will know current law and updates that affect you and your family. For example, a good Scott County criminal lawyer knows that the Scott County Board recently approved a new “social host” law that could hold parents criminally responsible for juveniles who consume alcohol in their homes. This means that a parent of a child may be arrested and prosecuted for the actions of that child. An excellent criminal lawyer will know how to defend that parent.
Scott County has also experienced an increase in federal crimes occurring in the county. A federal charge almost always carries a greater penalty than a state charge. A Scott criminal lawyer needs to be skilled at federal litigation.
