Hi I'm Chris Morales, I am a certified Specialist in Criminal Law. I've been handling criminal cases for over 20 years.
There are three basic laws that are the bedrock of our criminal justice system and I want to go over those three laws with you right now.
#1: The presumption of innocence. Anybody that has been charged with any criminal offense in the United States is presumed innocent until proven guilty. That means that they are presumed innocent from their arraignment all the way through their jury trial.
#2: The burden of proof. In every criminal case a defendant has no burden to prove that they are innocent. The burden of proof is all on the government. They have to come with evidence in testimony and attempt to prove the defendant guilty.
#3: Proof beyond the reasonable doubt the prosecution cannot prove their case and they cannot convince somebody their evidence is strong and substantial. If their evidence is weak and flimsy there will be no conviction and the defendant will be acquitted.
These are the three main that are the bedrock of our criminal justice system. If you would like to sit down and discuss these a little further with me. Please call my office and set up an appointment.
