The Sanders Firm, P.C. offers those in New York City criminal defense services that are focused on ensuring they receive a fair trial and are given every opportunity to prove their innocence. When you are charged with a crime, mounting a solid defense is essential to your ability to win your case. Defenses vary depending upon the evidence, the crime itself, and the law.
One can offer numerous defenses in criminal cases. In these pages, we will consider various defenses that you may have the opportunity to utilize. Your defense could be grounded on the fact that your actions were in some way justified or that there was duress or entrapment that caused you to engage in the actions that have led to charges being brought against you. Renunciation is another defense one may offer. With this defense, you may have planned to engage in criminal activity, but decided not to act. Other defenses have to do with whether or not the accused is at the age of criminal responsibility where they are considered answerable for their actions or if they were mentally in control or able to realize what the results of their actions would be.
How Strong is Their Case?
One of the jobs of a criminal defense lawyer such as The Sanders Firm, P.C. is to evaluate the charges and evidence against the defendant. By law, the defense has access to all evidence that might be used by the prosecution, which gives the defense the opportunity to build a case and when in court to argue against, cast doubt about, or even disprove the evidence.
In criminal cases, the prosecution must prove their case so that there is no reasonable doubt as to the defendant’s guilt. The reasonable doubt standard allows the defense to find areas in the prosecution’s case that are weak and will suffer from inconsistencies that become weakened by probing questions from the defense that open the evidence to further questioning and possible doubt, or that simply do not make logical sense.
If you have been charged with a criminal offense, contact The Sanders Firm, P.C. in New York City. We will discuss your case with you, review and evaluate the facts, and discuss possible routes that may be taken in initiating a successful defense.
The world of the defense lawyer is uncompromising in that he/she must be dogged in pursuing every route that may lead to your acquittal. Criminal investigations are often filled with mistakes, discrepancies, and misleading information. Often much of the evidence is circumstantial, which means there is a lack of eyewitness accounts. In addition, even if there are eyewitness accounts, they can be amazingly inaccurate and inconsistent.
