Defenses Your Lawyer Can Use
There are three primary defenses your lawyer can use to attempt to get your case dropped or the charges reduced:
- Insufficient evidence
- Lack of intent to commit a fraudulent act
- Improper police conduct
Make sure to inform your attorney of any improper police conduct during your arrest. If the police violate any of your rights during the arrest, your lawyer can get any evidence that they may have found during the arrest thrown out because of how they obtained it.
In the eyes of the law, you are innocent until proven guilty. This makes the job of your lawyer a little easier. An attorney does not have to prove that you were innocent of the crime you are being charged with, but rather provide enough evidence so that prosecutors can’t pin the charge on you. This is why it’s so important to have a knowledgeable attorney in your corner when facing mail and wire fraud charges.
