When you are approached by the police, or are accused by an individual for a criminal activity, you have Constitutional Rights available to you. The 5th Amendment states that “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury … nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without the due process of law.” This means when you have been formally charged with a crime, you have a right to go to court to fight your charge.

This is a fundamental law.


Criminal charges can be quite unpleasant. This is a simple but very true statement. Some of the most common criminal charges involve DUI, Domestic Violence, Assault, and Theft, including auto/vehicle theft and Larceny.
