In our legal system, everyone is entitled to a fair trial, and defendants are innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, law enforcement officials and prosecutors often seem to forget this when filing charges or questioning people who have been accused of a crime. Don’t stand for mistreatment if you’re facing criminal charges, and don’t just assume your case is a lost cause.
When you are arrested, you may be feeling angry, scared, embarrassed, or just plain paralyzed. The only thing you know for sure is that you do not want this to be happening. Unfortunately, it is not possible to just wish yourself out of criminal charges – even if you are innocent. Law enforcement officials in the upstate zealously pursue criminal prosecutions, and they often attempt to punish those accused to the fullest extent of the law. As a result, maximizing your odds of successfully defending yourself is key.
The best way to do this is to call a local criminal defense attorney as soon as possible so they can advocate for your rights, minimize damage, and start working on a plan for your defense.
