Aggressively Attacking Your Charges
When the State pursues a criminal matter, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused committed the offense. This burden requires that they provide sufficient evidence to back their claims.
But even if the prosecutor has a significant amount of evidence, that does not mean it's an open-and-shut case. Various defenses can be raised to cast reasonable doubt. For instance, in a matter involving battery, if the defendant used reasonable force to protect themselves or others from imminent harm, self-defense may be raised. Or suppose the police conducted an unlawful search and seizure in a drug possession case. In that case, the evidence they obtained may be inadmissible in court because law enforcement practices violated the defendant's Constitutional rights.
At The Abt Law Firm, LLC, our criminal defense attorney in Forsyth can look at everything that happened in your case – from the initial investigation to the formal charges being filed – to identify weaknesses in proof and arguments and defenses that can be mounted. You can be confident that we will leave no stone unturned as we fight to protect your rights and freedoms.
