Conspiracy charges, as discussed last week, can stem from either white-collar charges or from felonies such as homicide and murder charges. Those accused of murder in Maryland should take these charges very seriously and work diligently to present their side to the legal system. Though many tend to forget it, everyone is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law and everyone has the right to have their day in court which they can choose to avail.
One way to aggressively defend yourself and protect your rights is to consider hiring an experienced attorney who understands the tactics the prosecutor will use to further their case. Our founding member has extensive experience as a prosecutor and therefore understands how the prosecution will proceed in their case. In addition to this, he also has spent time with forensic experts and homicide detectives, which gives him an understanding of what techniques they will use.
Facing criminal charges is daunting enough, but murder/homicide charges are perhaps the most serious and carry the toughest sentences. Fighting these charges from the onset is essential to protecting one's good name-murder charges have the potential to smear one's reputation and can affect every aspect of the accused's life, from their personal relationships to their professional ones.
An aggressive defense can be mounted by creating a legal strategy specifically designed for the accused's circumstances, something lawyers at our firm are trained to do. A solution does not always have to be in the court-it is possible to find alternative solutions as well, such as plea bargains. For more on homicide charges, please visit our page.
