When an individual has been charged with a felony, it may come as a shock to his or her family members. Families may have questions about the type or degree of crime that a loved one has been charged with. While a previous post discussed felony charges related to counterfeiting, there is a wide range of felony charges in Louisiana, making it important to understand the details of the crime the accused was charged with. Defendants and their loved ones may have questions about one’s guilt or innocence, but most importantly, they may wonder how they can initiate a strong defense..
It is important to remember that a criminal charge is not a conviction. All too often police will arrest an innocent man or woman, and frequently a suspect may need his or her family’s help to prove that he or she is innocent of the alleged criminal activity. One important piece of assistance that families can provide is through helping a loved one obtain legal counsel. A strong criminal defense team, like that of Hymel Davis & Petersen, can help advocate for a defendant.
