Criminal Law

Felonies also use special rules when it comes to sentencing. These rules are called the Criminal Punishment Code. Using these rules, the State Attorney is required to create a “scoresheet” which will often determine the sentence, including the number of years and months one is realistically facing for a given felony.


I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
