The potential defenses your attorney may be able to use to fight your criminal charges vary depending on the specific facts of the criminal case. That being said, there are some general defense strategies that can apply to a great number of cases, including the following:

  • Illegal search – The evidence against you was obtained as a result of an illegal search by the authorities
  • Entrapment – You were compelled by a law enforcement agent to commit a crime that you would not have otherwise committed
  • Elements of crime not present – The prosecution’s evidence lacks the elements necessary to prove its case
  • Mistaken identity – You have been mistakenly identified as the perpetrator of a crime
  • False accusation – You have been falsely accused by the alleged victim of a crime
  • Duress – You were coerced to commit a crime under threatened or actual use of physical force
