The foundation of our criminal justice system is the principle that people should be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. This idea is familiar to us from television programs, crime novels and movies, but many of us forget about it when it comes to real life.
When you have been accused of crime, you can feel helpless. The police can be intimidating, prosecutors are eager to win a conviction against you, and you may even feel like your friends have turned against you.
When you are in that position, it's important to remember that you have the right to a defense. Seek out a criminal defense lawyer as soon as you can — before you make any statements to the police — and start protecting your future.
