When serious consequences are the real crime

It is no secret that the criminal justice system is flawed. How can it be perfect? In cases when there was no witness to a crime, when trained men and women are left to interpret results but start off with a pressure to pinpoint a perpetrator and an objective to then prove not only that the person is guilty but that they are correct, there simply are too many factors working against a person once they become a suspect.

Sometimes a suspect is not guilty of any crime and sometimes the suspect is not guilty of the crime he or she is being charged with. This is where a defense attorney can come into play. Your defense attorney represents you and speaks on your behalf, fights on your behalf and explains on your behalf. This is why it is so important to procure an attorney with whom you place trust and who you respect to get the job done.

If you are innocent, your attorney should be able to hold prosecutors to the fact that no matter what they think they have on you, they cannot prove anything without a shadow of a doubt. And if you have done something wrong but not what you have been charged with, your defense attorney should be able to argue down your charges, or at very least, reduce your penalties in the sentencing phase.

Sometimes the biggest crime is an inappropriately harsh sentence that has the potential to negatively affect the rest of your life. D. Scott Rieth knows the system first-hand because he was once a prosecutor. He knows how to speak to prosecutors on your behalf and upholds a respected reputation. Trust your future to D. Scott Rieth.
