Charge dismissal by prosecutors result of ballistics questions

Criminal charges are often placed based on an investigation initiated by law enforcement officers. In some cases, the results of the investigation can lead to an arrest that eventually ends in a criminal conviction. In other cases, the conviction is never obtained. A recent case in Arizona has taken an interesting turn regarding the suspect's criminal charges.

Having a defense attorney has specific benefits

In our post last week, we discussed the group of prosecutors that is reviewing the state laws that include criminal charges. These laws are often complicated and can be difficult to find when they aren't in the criminal code. That story shows just how difficult it can be for a defendant who is facing criminal charges to figure out exactly what is happening in his or her case.

Arizona's laws are being reviewed by group of prosecutors

Trying to navigate through all of the criminal codes in Arizona is sometimes an exercise in patience. One of the issues is that criminal codes can be found in a host of other places in the Arizona laws. Prosecutors are now reviewing the laws to determine if there are too many laws in the criminal codes. The group is also reviewing criminal charges that are based on codes found outside of the criminal codes for the state.

Defense strategy components can vary for drug cases

All defendants who are facing criminal charges will have to find a defense strategy that helps to refute the claims that are being made by the prosecution. It is important that you consider all possible defense strategies, because more than one strategy may be useful in fighting your charges. If you are facing drug charges, you might need to consider the following drug case defense strategies.

Why should I consider a plea bargain to end my case?

Defendants who are facing criminal charges will sometimes opt to not go through a criminal jury trial. This is often the case if the person thinks that the evidence against him or her is too great to overcome. In some cases, it is possible to resolve a criminal case with a plea bargain. If you are facing criminal charges, make sure that you explore the possibility for a plea bargain if you don't think your case will go well at a trial.
