Criminal defense attorneys ensure that police and prosecutors do their jobs correctly. The burden of proof is high in a criminal case. Prosecutors must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty of the crime that they say you are. Police are expected to produce, find, and interpret evidence legally and in strict accordance with the law. This means no illegal searches and seizures, ensuring the chain of custody is not interrupted, and formulating a valid theory as to how and why you committed a certain crime. Your Grand Blanc criminal defense lawyer stands between you and a prison cell. You should be concerned but it is not time to panic. We can help get the charges dismissed, dropped, or secure a not-guilty verdict if you go to trial. Talk to us early and do not say anything incriminating to the police.
A confession is the holy grail of police officer and prosecutorial work. Once they have a confession, it is difficult to get the confession thrown out at trial. If you recant later, the jurors will hear your confession and, more often than not, take that as a sign of your guilt. The police will try to rope you into a confession because this makes their job easier and you can never get it back. Most importantly, you lose any leverage you might have if the prosecution’s case against you is spotty. While they will not necessarily tip your hand when it comes to evidence, a skilled criminal defense lawyer will be able to read the situation more clearly and help you make an informed choice as to whether or not to take a plea deal.
