We all feel helpless at some point. When accused of a criminal offense, defendants likely believe that they do not have much of a chance to prove their innocence. They see the evidence piling up against them, they were initially taken into custody and he or she is led to believe that they must suffer the consequences of the alleged crime. However, this is not the truth. A defendant has the ability and the right to assert a criminal defense. Taking such a step could help prove one's innocence.
Getting criminal charges dismissed or reduced is not an easy process. One must establish ways to disprove the elements of the crime, helping to poke holes in the prosecution's case. Defendants in Georgia and elsewhere might assert that there was an unlawful search and seizure or an illegal arrest. No matter what defense route you take, it is important to have a legal team on your side.
