It doesn’t matter what crime was committed, the defendant in a criminal case has constitutional rights that may not be taken from them. First and foremost, a defendant is considered innocent until proven guilty, and, building from that, the prosecution must prove, beyond reasonable doubt, that the defendant is, in fact, guilty.
As a criminal defendant, you are protected by these rights, and the prosecution may do nothing to take them away from you in any way. This alone is the perfect reason to hire an attorney to support your case. With a defense attorney, you will have a keen set of eyes of your side, able to find any loophole possible to build your defense. Such an attorney would be able to have any sentences charged against you reduced to a reasonable severity, or even possibly be able to have the case thrown out altogether.
Don’t try and defend yourself alone. You have the right to an attorney, act on that right today. At Turner Law Offices, P.C. local Clarksville office, we offer a free initial consultation.
