Important considerations when you develop a criminal defense

Your criminal defense can include many elements, but there are some that might be more beneficial than others. What many defendants don't realize is that they have to take the circumstances of their case into account when they are trying to figure out what they are going to do about their defense strategy. What worked for someone else won't necessarily work for you unless everything about the two cases is identical.

Don't waste time when you need to plan a defense

Your criminal defense strategy has to be based on the facts of the case. You can't lie or tell misstatements because this could land you in even more trouble. Instead, you have to present the facts in a way that represents your side of the story. As you are doing this, you must think about how the presentation will be received. We know that this might seem challenging, but we are here to help our clients plan their best strategies.

Indiana Attorney General Hill endorses First Step Act

One big problem in the criminal justice system in Indiana, as well as around the country, is that there is a primary focus on punishment instead of rehabilitation. On a federal level, the First Step Act was just passed. This is a sweeping prison reform program that has some marked benefits to both offenders and the general public. Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill signed an endorsement of the legislation and noted that this was a bipartisan effort to make a big change.

Not all criminal charges come about in the same way

A person who is accused of a crime will have a lot of different things that they have to handle through the course of their case moving through the criminal justice system. While it is possible for a person to learn that they are being investigated, others don't know about the criminal charges until the time they are arrested. No matter how they find out that they are facing charges, there are important points to remember.

Heroin charges are all felonies in Indiana

Many drugs lead to troublesome situations. Heroin is no exception to this. A person who is addicted to heroin is likely going to make some bad choices to get their hands on the drug. They aren't worried about having to face criminal charges because the mind isn't going that far into the future. Instead, they are only worried about getting the high they are craving.
