STRATEGIES THE LAWYER USES TO HELP HIS CLIENT IN COURT
There are many ways to defend an accusation of a forgery crime and get the best possible results.
Plea Bargain: A plea bargain is an agreement between the judge, prosecutor and the defense to reduce or dismiss the charges with an agreement on sentencing that should avoid jail time and offer other favorable terms and conditions.
To get a good plea bargain, the attorney gathers important information about the client and the case and makes a presentation of the strengths of the client’s case to the prosecutor to have the original charges dismissed or reduced.
The plea bargaining process can occur at arraignment, pretrial conferences, or later as the case goes through the court system.
If the victim of the forgery is willing to cooperate with the accused, particularly if restitution is paid, this may be helpful.
As a result, the defense attorney may convince the prosecutor to do an excellent plea bargain that benefits the client by eliminating or reducing the criminal charges.
Jury Trial: A jury trial may be successful to prove that a client accused of committing a theft crime did not intend to steal any property or did not take anything at all.
The best type of trial defense will depend upon the nature of the criminal charge, the type of evidence, and the testimony of witnesses.
For example, the person who is accused of committing the theft crime may not have intended to take anything, there may be no motive, the evidence may be inconclusive, or the accused had no criminal intent.
