This post concludes our series on the handling of Little Rock, Arkansas cases involving violence. The goal of our last several posts has been to assist residents of our state in understanding what to expect as such cases move forward. In our experience many people accused of such crimes do not know what the process will involve, what issues their attorney may wish to explore, or how to handle the issue of an eyewitness. We cannot stress enough that one should contact a criminal defense lawyer immediately if they are charged with a crime of violence.
We have addressed several issues over our last several posts. Topics we have looked at included:
- Claiming self-defense when charged with a crime of violence
- Search & seizure issues which arise in cases involving a violent offenses
- Excluding eyewitness identifications in a criminal case
- Challenging an eyewitnesses testimony
These are important topics as many people unfortunately find themselves in a mindset of believing they will automatically be convicted. This is true whether one was arrested for assault, battery, or domestic violence. The truth of the matter, however, is that people are sometimes arrested when they did nothing wrong or when they were simply defending themselves. By understanding the issues which can be raised in such cases one can make a more informed decision as to how they should proceed when selecting counsel.
