As we recently discussed, opioids and violent crimes are the focuses of the new U.S. Attorney for this area. This means that more people might find themselves facing criminal charges for these types of cases. With this possibility looming, now is a good time for a reminder that you have to be ready to fight back against these charges if they are placed against you.

We understand that you might not know where to start with a case like this. We are here to help you learn about the options that you have for your case. This starts with the need to investigate the case against you so that you know what points are going to be brought up against you.

As you are working through your defense strategy, you have to keep the possible penalties in mind. These can range from fines and incarceration to the inability to vote or own a firearm. Keeping these mind might help you keep your focus on the case so that you can get determine how you are going to plan your strategy.

There are usually multiple ways that you can handle your case. You have to be honest with yourself when you are evaluating the options. Entertaining the idea of a plea deal might not be your first option, but you might end up wondering about that just because it would give you some idea of what sentence you would face.

If you are going to go to a trial, you need to think about how your case is going to appear to the jury. The idea that we need to consider here is that we must introduce doubts about what the prosecutor is stating happened in the crime.
