The murder defense attorneys from Pravati can help
With the recent release of the Netflix documentary, “Making a Murderer,” there is a lot of attention on the sometimes questionable tactics used by law enforcement in order to find enough evidence to make a charge of homicide stick. In some cases, law enforcement officers get stuck on one particular suspect—completely ignoring other possible parties. In other cases, evidence and witness statements are manipulated in order to make one person look guilty. While these tactics certainly don’t happen in every case, they happen more often than you may realize. According to the Innocence Project, over the last few decades, thousands of suspects have been pursued as if guilty of a crime until DNA evidence cleared them.
The Innocence Project
The Innocence Project states that the leading causes of wrongful convictions are misidentification by eyewitnesses, false confessions and improper forensic science. When facing a charge of homicide, it’s important that you have an experienced attorney by your side who understands how often wrongful convictions are made and who understands what to look for to ensure that doesn’t happen to you.
In some cases, it’s not just about defending against the charge but about getting the charges lessened. In a homicide case, you can plead various defenses that will affect the type of punishment you get. From self-defense to duress, diminished capacity to entrapment, each plea has its own specific set of parameters that your lawyer needs to fully understand if he or she wishes to properly represent you.
