What Does an Anaheim Criminal Defense Lawyer Do?

Anaheim criminal defense attorneys perform many crucial tasks. They research the facts and investigate the circumstances surrounding their clients’ charges. They attempted to negotiate plea deals with prosecutors. As a result, they can sometimes obtain reduced bail, charges, or sentences. In fact, due to a burdened criminal justice system, making deals has become more common in recent years. If an agreement can’t be made, the lawyer will represent their client at trial. Other jobs an Anaheim criminal defense lawyer does include:

  • Examining witnesses
  • Creating pleas
  • Analyzing the prosecutor’s case against their client
  • Assessing the potential sentences
  • Reviewing search and seizure procedures
  • Gathering evidence
  • Advise of potential immigration consequences or the other consequences of a plea, conviction, or criminal record

What to Do if You Face Criminal Charges

When you learn that you are or could face criminal charges, it’s essential to take measures to protect yourself. If you don’t, you could end up doing something detrimental to your case, causing you to have penalties you otherwise could have avoided. Here’s what you should or shouldn’t do in these situations:

Hire an Anaheim Criminal Defense Lawyer

Even if you haven’t yet been charged with a crime, it’s beneficial to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Your attorney can help ensure that you take measures to protect yourself and decrease the chances of facing severe consequences. The sooner your attorney can begin working on your case, the better.

Don’t Talk to the Police
Even though people generally know this step, it’s not taken nearly as much as it should be. Of course, it’s natural to want to explain or defend yourself when questioned by police. However, they aren’t the judge or the jury. Trying to defend yourself against them won’t lead to anything positive for you. Whatever you say can be used against you by the police or prosecutor in your case in criminal proceedings. Save what you need to say for your Anaheim criminal defense attorney.

Don’t Consent to Anything
You are protected under the U.S. Constitution when it comes to police searching for evidence in private areas. To search you, your vehicle, or your home, the police must meet certain legal conditions. One of these conditions is consent. If you agree to let them search somewhere or something, you give them the legal right to do so, and any evidence they find can be used against you. Suppose they search without your consent or without meeting the required legal conditions. In that case, your Anaheim criminal defense attorney can work to ensure that they can’t use that particular evidence against you.

What to Do if You Are Arrested
If you are arrested, keep all of these points in mind. This is a scary and overwhelming time, but it doesn’t necessarily mean the police have a valid case against you. Police detectives often take advantage of this intimidating process to persuade you to give them information. They want additional information to build their case successfully. Don’t help them. Instead, exercise your rights to remain silent. As soon as you are able, reach out to your Anaheim criminal defense lawyer.

It may be tempting, but don’t talk to other inmates about your charges or any circumstances that may have to do with your charges. Other inmates frequently and easily give up information to law enforcement for their own benefit. In addition, you and your family members should be cautious when talking on the phone while you are in jail. Every phone conversation is recorded and can be used against you in your case.
