In our previous blog post, we discussed what options you have during arraignment. This is a very important part of the criminal justice process that you have to go through if you are facing criminal charges. We know that you might not be fully prepared to deal with the process, but it is very important that you consider how your actions can affect you and your case.
One of the things that all defendants should do is speak with someone experienced in defending the type of case they are facing. This can help them to better understand what options they have for a defense and how they can investigate the circumstances of the case.
When you are facing criminal charges, you can't let your emotions rule what you do. Instead, you need to keep a clear head so that you can make choices based on the facts. Trying to make choices based on your emotions might not be in your best interests.
In the case of property crimes, there might be physical evidence that you have to comb through as you work on your defense. This can include fingerprints or DNA evidence that is being used to tie you to the crime scene. When that is the case, it is important to look at several things, including the chain of custody to determine if anything is amiss. Other considerations might also apply to these cases.
If you are facing any criminal charges, we can help you evaluate your case. Even if you plan to take a plea bargain, we can work with you to plan out the course of your case.
