1. Assert Affirmative Defenses: In some situations a defendant in New York may admit to committing a crime. However, he or she may have a justifiable reason or defense. For example, a person may be accused of shooting someone, however, they may have done it in self-defense. Thus, self -defense is an affirmative defense. An experienced NYC criminal lawyer may be able to introduce this evidence in order to to defend their client.
2. Raise Issues of Reasonable Doubt: In New York Courts, a defendant cannot be convicted unless the prosecution proves the defendant committed the crime beyond a reasonable doubt. An experienced NYC criminal defense lawyer may be able to defend a defendant by demonstrating that there are problems or credibility issues with the prosecution’s case or prove that the defendant’s account of the incident is more credible. An experienced lawyer may be able to prove a defendant’s innocence by introducing doubt in the minds of the jury.
3. Introducing Constitutional Defenses: An experience NYC criminal defense lawyer may defend a client by raising constitutional objections. For instance, defendants have Fourth Amendment constitutional protections against unreasonable searches and seizures. If a defendant’s Fourth Amendment constitutional rights were violated in the course of an investigation or arrest, evidence gathered by the police may be excluded from the prosecution’s case. These are some of the subjects decided in pretrial hearings.
4. Negotiating Plea Agreements: In some instances the defendant may be guilty of the charges. However, a lawyer with the right skills may be able to negotiate with the prosecution to plea to a lesser offense or serve less jail time or face less penalties. Remember, it’s very important to find a qualified criminal attorney as soon as possible in order to protect the defendant’s rights and preserve important defense evidence.
