If You Are Innocent or If Circumstances Can be Explained There is Still Risk
If you are innocent of the Rape or Statutory Rape charge you’re facing in a Connecticut criminal court or if the circumstances are easily explained, you should understand the police sometimes get it wrong amidst their presumption of guilt investigative style. You would be wise to consult with an experienced CT criminal lawyer before talking to them.
Here is How Our Lawyers Begin Your Defense Against a CT Rape Charge
The police, prosecutor, and district attorney have already spent quite a bit of time lining up a case against you including fine tuning police reports, locating witnesses, coaching the accuser, and developing other evidence. You must act quickly to prevent the state from gaining even more of an unfair advantage.
Norm Pattis and The Pattis & Smith Law Firm criminal attorneys will quickly look for weaknesses and imperfections in the state’s case and our activities will include an immediate demand for every detail of the case against you, we assign investigators to scrutinize the background and credibility of witnesses and the accuser, we ask the court to exclude irrelevant or illegally obtained evidence, and package your background profile in such a manner so as to maximize the chance of dismissal or reduction of the Rape charge against you.
