“There but for the grace of God, go I:” When the government targets you – a police investigation or prosecution – the experience is traumatic. What takes years to build up can be quickly destroyed. The initial cause could be police incompetence, sloppiness or misconduct; a momentary lapse of judgment – a false witness, an uncorroborated accusation. Brought in early, a good lawyer can change the course of events.
The courts are a competitive arena. The police are the government’s soldiers, “targeting” people for destruction, in the name of the law. Many prosecutors today care more about “winning” than about justice. Expediency has become the government’s top priority – the search for the truth is not. It’s “fast-food justice.” Will you be an easy prey? Good legal counsel can protect you.
Avoid becoming another statistic: The conviction rolls are filled with the names of innocent people; conveniently blamed; convicted of crimes they did not do. When evidence of actual innocence is uncovered later on, courts often find technicalities to refuse to consider it; to refuse to consider that they could have been wrong. The prisons of Minnesota hold many falsely convicted people. The United States has the highest per capita incarceration rate in the world. Don’t let it happen to you. With good legal help, we can fight and you can win.
