If you have been arrested or accused of a crime, it can be one of the most difficult periods in your life. You could be facing large monetary fines and possible long-term incarceration.

Jonathan W. McConnell is a criminal defense attorney dedicated to helping clients overcome tremendous odds.
This case type can involve battery, sexual offense, rape, or any other type of criminal offense. If you have been charged with a violent crime, then it’s extremely important to know your rights. Your criminal attorney will help establish a defense against the prosecutor who is trying to prove your guilt. There are several types of strategies that can be used to challenge the validity and sufficiency of the prosecution.
The most common type of defense is the claim that the defendant is innocent of the charges against them. All defendants are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The “burden of proof” is with the prosecution to prove the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Rather than having to “prove innocence,” the criminal defense attorney demonstrates the prosecution’s failure to prove its case. Your criminal defense attorney might establish an alibi defense where the defendant was at another location during the crime. Depending on the case, other types of strategies may include self-defense, intoxication, or the consent of the other party. The circumstances of your arrest will also be examined to make sure your rights weren’t violated.
