How to Get Criminal Charges Dismissed

If you are facing criminal charges then you need a good criminal defense lawyer to bail you out. They can reduce your sentence or even get the charges dismissed using a variety of tactics. This video explains some of the top tactics one criminal defense attorney uses to defend his clients.

The key to criminal defense is the “reasonable doubt” clause. A prosecutor needs to prove beyond the shadow of a reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty. That’s a high bar and one that criminal defense attorneys will use to their advantage.

The defense attorney works with the client while building the case. They will poke holes in the charges and show the prosecutors that they will not be able to prove to a court that the defendant committed the charges beyond a reasonable doubt. This will incentivize the prosecutors to come up with a plea deal to prevent the charges from being dropped completely.

Sometimes this will mean the defense attorney is filing motions to dismiss evidence. Evidence that is obtained illegally, such as a seizure outside the bounds of a warrant, cannot then be used to charge the defendant.
