A Guilty Verdict Is Not Automatic
Plea bargains and dismissals are part of the process.
Always remember that you are innocent until proven guilty. Just because you were charged with a criminal offence does not mean that you will be convicted.
It is not your job to prove your innocence. The prosecution must prove your guilt. Never assume that the crown prosecutor has all the evidence necessary to do so.
There are a number of reasons for which the criminal charges against you might be dismissed or reduced. Sean May, an experienced criminal defence lawyer in Ottawa, will review your file and determine if any of these reasons apply to your situation.
It is vital that you contact Sean May before you plead guilty. If you have not yet entered a plea, it may be possible for Sean May to negotiate a plea bargain, reducing the charges against you. If the evidence against you is weak, it may be in your best interest to plead not guilty and proceed to trial. You won’t know the best way to proceed until you speak with Sean May.
You have a lot to lose if you are convicted of a crime. Never give up hope and never plead guilty until you know your options. Call Sean May today at (613) 454-1237 and make an informed decision about your future.
Sean May will advise you about whether to proceed to trial.
Sean May will review the evidence that the prosecution has against you and analyze their case for strengths and weaknesses. Sean May will then set out your various options and advise you of the best way to proceed in your circumstances.
Sean May will answer the following questions for you:
- What evidence exists against you?
- How likely is it that you will be convicted if your case proceeds to trial?
- Is it possible to have the criminal charges against you dismissed or reduced?
If the case against you is weak, Sean May may recommend going to trial, where the judge will dismiss the charges against you.
Sometimes, when police officers believe that a person is guilty of a crime but they don’t have all the evidence they need to prove it, they will charge the person and hope that he or she pleads guilty. Don’t fall into this trap.
Consult with Sean May before you enter a plea. Then, if you do decide to plead guilty, you can do so with the confidence of knowing all your options.
