Being accused of a crime is a very frightening and intimidating period in any person’s life. Once accused of a crime a person is known as the Defendant. The Defendant is being prosecuted by the State of California. The State of California is represented by a criminal prosecutor who must establish that a Defendant is guilty of the crime(s) charged, beyond a reasonable doubt. A Defendant is entitled to certain rights provided by our Constitution. One of these very important rights is that a Defendant is entitled to present their defense to the crimes alleged and may do that through the use of an attorney. A Defendant has several defenses available such as did not commit the crime alleged, self-defense or some type of justification. If a Defendant is guilty of a crime, good negotiation and mitigation can result in a very favorable outcome if presented effectively. If a Defendant has not committed a crime, a Defendant will have the opportunity to obtain discovery and vigorously attack the Prosecutor’s case. A Prosecutor must believe that if they take any case to trial, they have a good chance of obtaining a successful jury verdict against that Defendant. With an experienced and tenacious defense attorney, you can work together in poking holes in the Prosecutor’s case or mitigating the circumstances to shed a different light on the facts alleged in the Complaint against you to obtain a favorable outcome.
