Our lawyers will help you review and challenge the evidence against you
During the investigation of a theft crime, police frequently employ a variety of methods and tools to collect evidence in tracking a suspect. Evidence collected can include video footage, audio recordings, eyewitness statements, fingerprints, DNA, footprints and even canine tracking. As a result, the police may assert that they have collected a “mountain of evidence” which implicates the suspect in the crime. However, what the police suspect and what the prosecutor can prove are two different things. An experienced attorney can help you determine the best strategy for challenging the evidence and protecting your rights.
Theft crimes are well defined in Virginia’s criminal code and can encompass a broad set of conduct. Defense of these cases will most typically require your attorney to pay attention to detail. Frequently a case can turn on one or two pieces of evidence which are critical to the prosecution’s case. If that evidence can be excluded by the actions of your attorney, your chances of avoiding a conviction may improve dramatically.
