Facing a criminal charge can be extremely stressful, especially since having a charge on your record can impact many areas of your life – from employment to housing to custody decisions. When you are facing a criminal charge, not only is your reputation on the line but your freedom and finances, as well. While you might think that the justice system will work to protect your rights and presume you innocent until proven guilty, the system is notoriously not pro-defendant. Having your own criminal defense attorney evens the playing field against the prosecutor, whose full-time job is to pursue charges against defendants with all the resources of the district attorney’s office.
An experienced criminal defense attorney in Rochester Hills from the Law Offices of Bradley J. Friedman is standing by now to answer any questions you might have and assess your situation. Read on to learn more about how a criminal defense attorney can help you in your case.
There is a lot at stake in a criminal case, and it is important to have an attorney on your side with experience handling your specific charges. While criminal courts are not exactly like television, as you have likely seen before on various courtroom series, there are standards of proof and rules of evidence that the prosecution must meet for a charge to lead to a conviction.
Your experienced criminal defense attorney knows each element of the crime you are being charged with and how the law applies to the unique facts and circumstances of your charge. When each element is not met, or the circumstances surrounding your charge cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt to the jury, then you should be acquitted. This is something that is not always easy to achieve, however, even if you know you did not commit the offense.
