The core component to being found guilty of a crime is proving that the
suspected criminal committed the crime beyond any reasonable doubt. This
means that if there is any evidence that suggests that someone did not
commit the crime, and there is flexibility in distinguishing the meaning,
then the suspect cannot be convicted. One of the ways that this is established
is through the jury system, whereby a unanimous decision concerning the
supposed guilt of a suspect must be made prior to a conviction. In order
to ensure the best possible outcome for any criminal case, it must be
handled with the help of an aggressive criminal defense attorney that
will stop at nothing to secure the best possible outcome.
How can I prove my innocence?
An attorney and the accused can work together to build their defense based
on two important differences: that the suspect did not commit the crime
or that the suspect played a role in the supposed crime. Depending on
the circumstances, either can apply and they can both work to reduce or
even eliminate the charges that the accused may be facing.
Did not commit a crime: Since it is assumed that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, proving
innocence by providing evidence against the prosecutions, casting a shadow
of doubt over the claims against a suspect, or showing that they accused
had an alibi that made it impossible for them to commit a crime can help acquit.
Committed a crime, but…: Sometimes someone committed a crime, but they cannot be found guilty.
This occurs if they were acting in self-defense, that the accused is considered
insane, drug or alcohol was involved, or that the accused was a victim
