How a Criminal Defense Attorney in Blaine Will Help
When you contact DeVore Law Office, we will discuss your options for responding to criminal charges. For example, you may wish to plead guilty to avoid the harshest penalties or to get the prosecutor to charge you with a lesser crime. You may also wish to enter into a diversion program in order to stay out of jail and/or avoid a permanent criminal record. Mr. DeVore can explain these options to you and help you interact with the prosecutor and the court to explore these possibilities.
In many cases, of course, the ideal goal is to get the charges dropped or to win a not-guilty verdict to avoid any penalties or to avoid criminal conviction entirely. There are several ways to approach your defense or fighting to get charges dropped. Options can include:
- Raising affirmative defenses such as self–defense
- Petitioning to keep evidence against you out of court because it was illegally collected
- Showing the prosecutor didn’t prove the case against you
- Raising questions about the veracity of the evidence against you, such as proving a problem with a breath test or suggesting an alternative theory to the crime
Your attorney can evaluate your case and put together a defense that makes sense given the circumstances so you’ll have a chance of fighting conviction. While the outcome of your case will depend upon the facts and evidence against you, it is always a smart choice to take advantage of your right to an attorney.
