The process of being arrested by the police and then prosecuted in the criminal justice system can be
embarrassing, intimidating, and confusing. Although you have been charged with a crime, you are
presumed to be innocent of that crime until proven guilty. Before you can be convicted of a crime, the
State of Florida, through the State Attorney’s Office, must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
In addition, you have other constitutional rights under the United States Constitution and the Florida
Constitution. The violation of these constitutional rights by the police or other state or government
agency could be grounds for the criminal charges against you to be dismissed. It is important to have an
experienced Sarasota Defense Lawyer review your case to determine if any of your constitutional rights
have been violated. A criminal defense attorney can also investigate the facts of your case and any
potential defenses that you may have to the crime or crimes with which you are charged.
