If you were arrested or charged with a crime in Dayton, Ohio, it can be a terrifying time. Even if the charges are minor, it can be overwhelming. Being arrested and handcuffed is scary enough, but being hauled away in a police car and processed at a police station is one of the worst experiences most people will ever go through. In some cases, law enforcement officers may pressure you into admitting guilt by telling you there is no hope and that you are going away for a long time.
It is important to understand that being charged with a crime is not the same as being convicted. Always remember that you are presumed innocent until proven guilty, and like others, you are entitled to a fair trial. This is why you need to retain a skilled criminal defense lawyer in Dayton.
As soon as you are arrested and charged with a crime, you can guarantee that officers and the prosecutorial team are building their case against you. Do not be fooled; they will utilize every technique possible in order to strengthen their case and weaken yours. You have a right to counsel, and you should speak with a Dayton criminal defense attorney before answering any questions or making a decision whether or not to plead guilty.
By asking to meet with an attorney right away, you lessen the risk of hurting your own case. Any mistake you make could be the evidence they need to convict you. However, any mistakes they make could damage their case against you and lead to either a dismissal or acquittal of all charges in the event the case proceeds to the trial stage.
Do not assume that if you are charged with a misdemeanor, it is not worth retaining an attorney. Even misdemeanor convictions on your record have long-lasting consequences. Do not plead guilty—let a skilled attorney help you understand what your legal options are. In addition, your attorney will look to strike a deal with the prosecutor’s office that may involve the charge staying off your record. But, if you proceed on your own and agree to a bad deal, there is little an attorney can potentially do for you.
