What Is Criminal Law?

Criminal law defines what behavior is considered a crime and establishes the punishment for those who are found guilty of committing a crime, as well as the rights of individuals accused. Criminal law is enforced by government agencies such as the police, the district attorney’s office, and the courts.

The criminal justice system is responsible for investigating, charging, and prosecuting individuals who are suspected of committing a crime, as well as for imposing penalties such as fines, imprisonment, or community service on those who are convicted.

Why Should I Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney?

Hiring a criminal defense attorney is crucial if you have been charged with a crime. Your criminal lawyer can help exercise your rights, navigate the criminal justice system, and work towards the best possible outcome for your case.

They have the knowledge and experience to fully grasp the charges against you, the evidence that the prosecution has, and the legal procedures that will be followed in your case. They can also help you understand your options and the possible consequences of each choice, and advise you on whether to plea bargain, go to trial, or negotiate a plea agreement.

What Are My Rights If I Am Charged with a Crime?

While you have several rights protected by the state and federal constitution, the most crucial rights include the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney, and the right to a fair trial. It is important to understand that these rights are not automatic, and you should exercise them as soon as possible.

Can a Criminal Lawyer Prevent Charges from Being Filed?

A criminal defense attorney can help prevent charges by providing representation during the investigation, as they can communicate with law enforcement and prosecutors on your behalf, providing information that may clear your name or cast doubt on the evidence against you.

Additionally, they may be able to present evidence or arguments that convince the prosecution not to file charges or to file less serious charges. Also, if the attorney is able to show that the evidence was obtained illegally or that the arrest was made without probable cause, they can file a motion to suppress the evidence.
