Criminal Defense Lawyers Explained
In this video, you will learn about a criminal defense lawyer. When a criminal defense lawyer works on a case, their primary goal is to get the case dismissed for their client. Although many cases result in a settlement, the primary goal is always to get the plaintiff to drop the charges or for the case to get dismissed.
There are a few ways that a criminal defense lawyer can get a case dismissed. The main way that the defense attorney gets a case dropped is if the prosecution attorney cannot prove their case without a reasonable doubt. This means that there is not enough evidence to press charges on the client. For the most part, a lack of evidence is the main way that the prosecuting attorney can’t prove their case without a reasonable doubt. Some examples of evidence are a police report, medical records, video, or an eye-witness account. If there was evidence that was unlawfully obtained, such as video, this is a large violation of 4th amendment rights. The defense lawyer can file for this evidence to be out of the case.
