Fairfax Criminal Defense Attorney
Legal Counsel for Defendants in Fairfax, Virginia
In criminal prosecutions under state or federal law, a defendant may raise
a defense in an attempt to avoid being held liable for whatever offense
he or she may have been accused of committing. There are numerous ways
in which to build a successful defense against criminal allegations, including
factual innocence as well as lawful excuse. Additionally, a defendant
may challenge criminal charges on the grounds that the prosecution does
not have enough evidence to secure a conviction - to prove that the defendant
committed the crime beyond a shadow of a doubt. Challenging evidence may
be done by proving the evidence itself is faulty or that the manner in
which it was collected and/or processed was in violation of the defendant's
rights or standard procedure.
Criminal defense is essential to keeping the criminal justice system in
America balanced. If a defendant had no right to legal counsel and no
right to raise a defense in this way, people would be convicted of crimes
left and right. We would have to rely upon law enforcement personnel,
prosecutors, and all court personnel to never make a mistake or never
have a lapse in judgment. That is just too much to ask from people who
are, after all, only human.
It is necessary to offer a defendant, accused of any crime from
DUI all the way to murder, the opportunity at challenging these allegations
and avoiding a conviction. Because there are always cases where a person
is wrongfully accused and may face imprisonment or worse without criminal defense.
