The long-running and popular syndicated television show Cops has brought the lives of police officers and suspects into the living rooms of the American public for over 25 years.
Chances are you remember how the theme songs starts. If not, lets refresh your memory: “Bad boys, bad boys…“
The plot line of stand-up police officers working hard to take down filthy, good-for-nothing criminals plays well to a television audience, but it is nowhere close to reflecting the reality of the typical criminal case.
Who Are Criminal Suspects Really?
It’s time for some real talk about the type of people who find themselves facing criminal charges such as DUI.
Good people can and do find themselves on the wrong side of the law. This includes your family, your friends, doctors, teachers, even you. Clearly these are not examples of hardened criminals; these are members of the community in good standing who find themselves facing serious complications from criminal charges including jail time and fines.
If you find yourself under investigation, accused, or charged with a crime, it is in your best interest to make sure you have a proven criminal defense lawyer on your side.
Remember, all it takes is one misunderstanding, one bad decision, or one time being in the wrong place at the wrong time to place your reputation, your career, and your freedom at risk.
The good news is that all it takes is one consultation with an attorney to get the ball rolling on a strong defense of your rights.
