Defending Your Constitutional Rights After An Arrest in Cleveland
Our Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help Ensure You are Treated Fairly
The prosecution can generally choose whether to pursue lesser or more serious charges. Your attorney’s ability to present a convincing argument that puts the defendant in a favorable light can influence how the crime is charged and whether charges may be reduced or dropped. For instance, violation of your constitutional rights by law enforcement officers during arrest or while gathering evidence can derail or weaken the prosecution’s case against you.
