Just because you have been charged with a crime doesn’t mean you are guilty of the crime. Quite often, District Attorneys (DAs) overcharge or have only one side of the story. Quite often your rights have been violated—an unlawful search and seizure, denial of your right to counsel or right to remain silent, a false arrest and imprisonment—various violations of your constitutional protections which warrants suppression of evidence or outright dismissal of the charges. Not to mention, the DA bears the burden of proving your guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
