With so much on the line, you cannot afford to chance your defense to an inexperienced attorney.
The first issue in any criminal case is the legality of the original encounter between the accused and the police. We need to know as many details as possible about that encounter, as even minor details can make all the difference.
If the police did not have a 'reasonable and articulable' basis for your detention, all evidence seized must be suppressed, and the police will have no case.
Each charge carries a different consequence. You may be facing a simple misdemeanor or a felony which may carry up to a life sentence. It is vital that you understand the ramifications of the charges you are facing, as even a misdemeanor can have serious consequences and completely alter the course of a person's life.
Every criminal charge is unique. Strict procedures and laws must be followed in order for the charges to be upheld. Preparing the defense in criminal cases involves investigation of the facts (which includes discovery of the government's evidence and interviewing witnesses, etc.), researching the law and of course, discussing the case with the prosecutor. The point is, Attorney Jevon Jaconi needs to get involved in the case as early as possible.
