Most of the time when people face criminal charges in Georgia, they aren’t really sure what to expect. Many are so-called “first-time offenders.” But, you are innocent until proven guilty. And sometimes, proving defendants guilty is a steep hill for prosecutors in Georgia to climb. By no means should you make it easier for them.
That’s why it is so crucial to act fast when you face criminal charges. As soon as you can, you need to be working to build your criminal defense strategy. Some cases are dismissed before they get too far, for a variety of reasons. Maybe the evidence to press forward with the case is insufficient. Maybe your constitutional rights have been violated. You won’t know if you can look at these options if you don’t move fast.
Ultimately, the goal for most criminal defendants is to “beat the case.” You may be able to do just that with the right strategy. If you can get the charges dismissed or if you get a “not guilty” verdict at trial, that is obviously much better than a conviction. However, in some cases, negotiating plea agreements in which the original charges or potential sentence are lessened could be considered a win for some defendants.
