Building an Arlington Robbery Defense

The most important part of building an Arlington robbery defense is gathering as much information as one can about the alleged victim and the offense they are accused of. Having information on hand can be beneficial in the creation of your case. An experienced robbery attorney can help you seek out the holes in the prosecution’s case which can help you fight the accusations against you.

What is a Criminal Complaint?

A criminal complainant is essentially an alleged victim, witness, or third party either calling the police or going down to the magistrate and essentially telling them what somebody has done something to them. A criminal complaint can sometimes stop there at the complaint that the individual. Alternatively, a simple complaint can escalate to the point of having to identify someone in a lineup at the police station.

Type of Evidence to Use in a Robbery Case

The strongest defense in a robbery or theft case is often an alibi. When building an Arlington robbery defense, an attorney may want to call a witness to the stand anybody who can corroborate the details of the individual’s case.

Alternate Defense Options

If one is not arguing alibi and one is just trying to essentially poke holes in the commonwealth’s case, then one is going to want any piece of evidence that the Commonwealth has that they are going to be using against the accused so that they can study it, learn it, and find all the problems with it in order to show the judge and/or jury that the Commonwealth is not going to be able to meet their burden in that particular case.

When one is compiling their own evidence, alibi is the way to go but when one is just trying to essentially show that the Commonwealth cannot meet their burden, they want to compile anything the commonwealth is going to be using in an attempt to ultimately show the judge or jury that they have not been able to prove their case for one reason or another. It could be critical for the accused to speak with legal counsel about building an Arlington robbery defense based on the compiled evidence and information.

Importance of Contacting a Theft Attorney

When creating a case before trial, it can be beneficial to ask your lawyer what is expected of your role as the accused. An individual should speak with a local attorney who has experience building an Arlington robbery defense. Hiring an attorney who is familiar with local prosecutors and how they operate can have a positive impact on your case. Discuss your case with a lawyer who knows how the prosecution often maneuvers and how to defend the case. An experienced attorney can help keep an individual well-informed if and when they have to make a decision regarding their case about the type of outcome they desire.
