Exercising right to criminal defense

When Georgia residents peruse their local news, they may notice some of the stories reporting crimes are a bit one-sided. Many times, details that may pertain to a suspect's presentation of a criminal defense are left out of initial reports. When a person is arrested, that individual is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court and beyond a reasonable doubt, and there is often much more to the story than the public is aware of. 

Recently, it was reported that a Georgia man crashed his truck into a stack of beer boxes that had been delivered to a gas station. Witnesses reported that the man was armed, but left the scene with no further incident before police arrived. Law enforcement began to search for the suspect, and their search led them to a nearby RV park. 

Georgia police later reported that in addition to the arrest of the gas station suspect, two more arrests were made. Deputies admitted to firing shots at another man in the park because he was armed when they encountered him, as well as a third man, also reported to be armed. All suspects reportedly surrendered peacefully, and police did not provide any detail as to why the men may have behaved in a way that the authorities interpreted as threatening. 

When it's time to prepare a criminal defense, the accused individual may not know how best to proceed. Many people in a similar situation choose to hire an experienced attorney. In criminal cases, the prosecution must prove each and every element of the crimes charged, and an accusation is certainly no proof of guilt. An attorney can help a client consider all available legal options in order to make informed decisions at every stage of the criminal proceedings.
