Importance of Hiring an Experienced Lawyer
When dealing with criminal charges, it may be tempting to think that you can handle them on your own. Many people believe that just because they are innocent, that they do not need to be concerned about hiring a private attorney – they believe that it will be a wasted expense. This, however, is completely untrue. Unfortunately, there are many people each year who experience a wrongful conviction. There are many different reasons that such a thing can occur, however, according to the Innocence Project (a national organization dedicated to exonerating the innocent), some of the most common causes include:
- Eyewitness misidentification;
- Improper scientific evidence; and
- False and misleading confessions
Other causes of wrongful conviction can include prosecutorial and police misconduct, as well as evidence fabrication or wrongful suppression. Therefore, being innocent is often not enough to protect yourself. You need to be confident that you have an advocate on your side who will be there every step of the way to helping you obtain the just outcome that you fully deserve.
