Arrested In Connecticut with a Criminal Charge?
If you’ve been arrested and charged with a serious criminal charge in Connecticut, it is imperative that you contact a criminal defense lawyer right away. You have the right to remain silent and do not have to answer questions from police or interrogators. You also have the constitutional right to obtain an attorney if you’ve been accused of a crime. It is vital that you protect yourself from incrimination immediately upon arrest. In many cases police may try to mislead or confuse you in order to get you to speak about or admit to a crime. This sworn testimony given in the heat of the moment may be misunderstood or taken out of context and used later in a trial to convict you of a crime. This is why it is in your absolute best interest to contact a criminal defense lawyer right away.
The state of Connecticut will have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are in fact guilty of a crime. The burden is on the prosecutor and the state. From the evidence gathering, to the arrest, to the interrogation, to the trial, there is a plenty of room for error that our law firm can use to get your charges dropped or reduced. Perhaps your civil rights were violated during the arrest, or evidence was tampered with or a witness was not reliable. Your Defense Attorney or a member of our Criminal Defense team will thoroughly review every aspect of your case and are prepared to explore all available possibilities for your legal defense.
