Facing criminal charges means that you are looking at possible incarceration, fines and other penalties. These have to remain at the forefront of your mind when you are in this situation so that you can determine how to combat the charges. On top of thinking about this, you also need to think about what defense options you have.
One of the important things you have to think about is how you are going to tell your side of the story. You need to consider how your side might appear to the jury so that you know what you should do. It is imperative that your defense is based solely on fact but how you relay those facts can have an impact on the outcome of the case.
Some defendants tend to focus on trying to prove they are innocent instead of trying to prove that there is reasonable doubt in the prosecutor’s claims. Jurors are instructed to convict a person only if they believe that the person did the crime beyond a reasonable doubt.
Your defense might be a combination of points that come together to create a strategy. You might be able to call specific points of the prosecution’s case into question. This can help you determine exactly where you need to focus.
