Have you been charged with any crime? Speak with an experienced Lakewood criminal defense attorney immediately to protect your rights.
Violent crimes tend to be prosecuted extremely aggressively; both police and district attorneys look good when someone is convicted of murder, and many people may feel safer. However, it is very important to understand that people who are arrested for crimes have rights under the United States Constitution. Everyone makes mistakes, including police officers and prosecutors. The police may honestly believe that they have arrested the right person, but that doesn’t mean it’s true. A false conviction, meanwhile, can ruin an innocent person’s life.
