In simple terms, a crime is something that is prohibited by law and for which the government can punish you for. In Washington, crimes are generally classified into Felonies and Misdemeanors.
If you are charged with a crime, you are innocent unless proven guilty. To convict a defendant of a crime, the prosecutor must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. A criminal defense lawyer provides representation to people facing criminal charges.
Often times, many people facing criminal charges have no idea what the consequences are of their alleged crime; or they simply lack an understanding of how the prosecutor will attempt to prove the government’s case.
A good criminal defense lawyer teaches their client the fundamentals of what crime or statute they are being accused of. They discuss vulnerabilities of the case – even if wrongly accused. They discuss and provide options to defend or mitigate consequences of punishment.
All defendants shall be given a vigorous defense advocate and someone to serve as a pillar to prevent injustice.
