Don't Assume the Police Have Told You Everything
The police won't tell you everything they know when questioning or arresting you on criminal charges. Regardless of how strong or circumstantial the evidence may seem against you, hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer is essential in avoiding self-incriminating statements or actions that could harm your case later. It's also important to remember most police departments have limited resources. Even large, metropolitan police departments do not have the money and manpower needed to investigate cases in the manner portrayed in TV shows like "CSI," "Cold Case," or "Law and Order."
As a result, police and prosecutors sometimes cut corners. They fail to pursue alternative leads, fail to track down relevant eyewitnesses, or fail to collect all relevant physical evidence. Consequently, investigators and prosecutors may develop a "working theory" early on in the process which guides them in their investigation. Evidence or eyewitness testimony at odds with the "working theory" tends to get discarded in favor of information or evidence that supports their assumptions.
Challenging the Evidence and Charges against You
Your Sugar Land criminal defense attorney can highlight and expose assumptions that prevent prosecutors from pursuing other leads and suspects. Our office exposes cut corners, the mishandling of evidence and questionable police conduct that can often taint an investigation.
Regardless of whether you're facing serious charges or a misdemeanor traffic violation, we have the resources and knowledge needed to defend your rights and protect your interests.
