Criminal Defense Archives

Use your head and not your heart during defense planning

When you are facing criminal charges, you might be tempted to let your emotions rule. While it is easy to see why that would happen, it is necessary to keep a good head on your shoulders. You have to think clearly so that you can make decisions at every turn of the case.

Learn about what options you have for dealing with police

We recently discussed how pranks can lead to criminal charges. The issue with pranks is that they can do harm to people. Charges resulting from pranks are only one type of charge you might face. As you are being questioned about the prank, you must provide honest answers or simply invoke your right to remain silent.

Pranks can lead to criminal charges under some circumstances

When you are trying to play pranks on people, you have to think carefully about what you are going to do. You might want the prank to be memorable; however, you should make sure that the reason it is remembered is because it is an awesome, funny prank and not an illegal prank. If you are thinking about doing one of the following pranks, think again because all of these can lead to criminal charges.

Know statutes and the case against you when you prepare a defense

We recently discussed the concept of self-defense. This is one of those defense strategies that isn't always appropriate. If you are facing charges of any sort, you should explore every defense possibility that is available. This can be a challenge, but it can help you out greatly because you have a good idea of what you might be able to do.

The jury that hears your case determines your fate

Criminal defendants have the right to a trial by jury. For the defendants that opt to exercise this right, it is crucial that they understand exactly what this means. One of the concepts that is often spoken of is the right to have a jury of peers, but this concept isn't based on the Constitution. Instead, it is a long held standard.
