Missouri Criminal Defense
"Innocent until proven guilty." It's the most basic presumption of our criminal justice system. Unfortunately, the stigma of being accused of a crime starts well before the jury reaches its verdict. Just think about any celebrity or other widely-publicized court case, where all the armchair jurors come out to pass judgment before the facts are even presented. Your case might not be newsworthy, but it's still serious, and the mere allegation that you've committed a crime can have its impact. It can affect your relationships with family and friends and your reputation in the community. Being convicted of the crime only makes matters worse.
