Defense Against Criminal Charges
Important to criminal defense is defense of the client's constitutional rights. The client is protected by the United States Constitution against unreasonable searches and seizures. Where police overstep, the attorney moves to exclude the evidence from the trial. This often results in a dismissal of charges. Where the client has made a confession, it may also be excluded if taken under duress or without notifying the client of rights to be silent or have an attorney present.
Criminal prosecutions based on conspiracy often involve clarifying the relationship of the client with the principals of a criminal conspiracy. For instance a passenger in a car may be charged with conspiracy to transport drugs when drugs are found in the trunk of the car. The criminal defense attorney will seek to show that the passenger did not know of the drugs and was not part of the criminal scheme.
