At The Law Office of Fisher Wise, I understand how frightening being charged with a crime can be. It might negatively affect your future, but it doesn’t have to. If you have been charged with a crime it is critical that you retain expert legal counsel immediately in order to protect your constitutional rights. There may be evidence that proves you are innocent! But the longer you wait to obtain it the more likely it is that it could be lost or destroyed. Many people don’t realize where to start when it comes to gathering evidence to prove their innocence.
IF YOU'RE ACCUSED OF A CRIME
The first thing you would need to do if you were falsely accused of a crime is to make a list of all possible evidence. This includes:
- Physical evidence relating to the case
- Documents or records
- Evidence from the crime scene
- Possible witnesses
Do not attempt to get rid of, or destroy anything, even if you think it could be damaging because there is the possibility that it won’t be. And, of course, be prepared to give this list to your attorney.
