Charged With A Crime? Hire Experienced Criminal Lawyers
While it is certain police do not take pleasure in making arrests, remember that once you are arrested, police and prosecutors are not there to make your life easy. In fact, once you are booked on your criminal charges, their goal is to get a conviction and watch you go to prison. While you could choose to rely on a public defender appointed to you by a judge, you are not likely to get the legal representation you need to keep yourself from suffering severe consequences. Rather than feel hopeless and defeated before your case gets underway, hire experienced criminal lawyers who care about your situation and are determined to fight for your legal rights as your case plays out in court.
Once you have a skilled criminal lawyer representing you, this will go far in making sure you do not make critical mistakes along the way that will damage your ability to win your case. For example, since most people who are arrested are upset and scared, police use this to their advantage by coercing confessions or other statements out of those who have been charged with a crime. Also, they often get these confessions and statements without the person having an attorney present during questioning. If you want to ensure your case plays out in the best possible way, always insist on having your criminal lawyer present prior to you being questioned or saying anything to police.
Explaining Your Options
When you have been arrested, do not assume you will automatically be found guilty and sent to prison. Also, don’t believe that you immediately must give statements to police. Since you do have many legal rights afforded you by the U.S. Constitution, use these to your advantage by hiring a criminal lawyer who has a record of success helping clients like yourself. By doing so, your attorney can sit down with you, listen to your side of the story, and explain the many legal options you likely have at your disposal. Whether it is negotiating a plea bargain to reduced charges or letting your case go to trial so a jury can be convinced of your innocence, listening to your lawyer in these situations can mean the difference between a conviction or keeping your freedom.
Knowing the System
If you have never been arrested for anything prior to this incident, the criminal justice system will be an entirely new and scary experience for you until your matter is resolved. Since you won’t know what to expect, police and others will take advantage of you being scared and ill-informed to set the stage for your prosecution. However, a knowledgeable criminal lawyer won’t let this happen for many reasons. To begin with, they know how the system works, and often know the police and prosecutors themselves. By possessing this knowledge, your lawyer will know whether or not the prosecutor in charge of your case is open to negotiating, has experience with cases such as yours, and is someone who may be prone to bluffing in order to convince defendants to confess to crimes. Once prosecutors know you have a skilled criminal attorney on your side, they are often much more willing to play fair and get your case resolved to everyone’s satisfaction.
Witnesses and Experts
Despite what prosecutors may have already said about your case, it is not likely they have evidence against you that guarantees you will be spending the next many years of your life in prison. Instead, they probably have evidence that is suspect at best, which is where you criminal lawyer can begin to take apart the prosecutor’s case against you. Through a combination of interviewing witnesses and bringing in people such as doctors or others who can act as expert witnesses, your lawyer can construct a legal strategy that demonstrates the many weaknesses of the prosecution’s case. By having as many experts as possible testify in court on your behalf, it becomes much harder to a jury to reach a guilty verdict.
In any type of criminal trial, the amount of paperwork that needs to be completed and filed with the court can be quite large. If you decide to work with an attorney who does not specialize in criminal cases, crucial motions may not be filed and deadlines imposed by the court may be missed. Should any of this happen, your case could be doomed to failure before it even gets started. If you don’t want to have these types of unexpected and unpleasant surprises come your way the closer you get to trial, always hire an attorney you know will pay attention to the smallest of details, has a good understanding of criminal cases, and cares about you and your situation.
Not Afraid to Fight
Last but certainly not least, have a criminal lawyer on your side who is passionate about your case and is not afraid to fight to prove your innocence or get your charges reduced by prosecutors. While most prosecutors are acting as if they are invincible, they often know they may not be able to win a case once it goes to trial. Since it is never certain what a group of jurors may decide in the end, you and your criminal lawyer actually have the advantage in these situations. By realizing this early on and letting your lawyer take the fight to prosecutors, you may be surprised at the results you get from this strategy.
Rather than let yourself be led to believe a conviction is all but certain, contact a criminal lawyer as soon as possible after your arrest. By doing so, you give yourself a much better chance of winning your case.
