Criminal defense protects individual’s rights

On Behalf of | Nov 12, 2019 | Criminal Defense

Looks can be deceiving. What appears to be a crime may in fact be something entirely different. In many instances, what occurs is beyond the scope of the general population’s ability to determine if a crime is in progress or if there may be some other type of concern that needs to be addressed. When a New Hampshire resident suddenly finds him or herself at the center of something that may be considered a crime, such as DWI, a sound criminal defense will go a long way in protecting the individual’s rights.

Recently, a middle-aged New Hampshire man was spotted driving in what appeared to be an unsafe manner. Witnesses claim that he was quickly veering into different lanes and that his vehicle even hit the guardrail. Law enforcement officers attempted to stop the vehicle; however, the driver failed to stop, and officers pursued him until he finally stopped. The driver was then arrested and charged with DWI as well as other related charges.

What actually happened in this instance has yet to be determined. Several New Hampshire residents have indicated what they believe to be the facts of the case; however, these facts have not been presented to a judge and/or jury, and the accused man remains innocent in the eyes of the law unless and until guilt is proved in court and beyond a reasonable doubt. It is possible that there are facts unknown to the general public which may have some bearing on this particular case.

When one is accused of a crime, he or she will want an experienced criminal defense team working on the case. Such a team can make sure that the individual’s rights are protected and that the facts of the case are accurately portrayed in court. By working together, the individual and legal counsel can make informed decisions regarding the appropriate way to proceed.
