What Kind Of Evidence Will They Find?
- If police only collect enough evidence to support their assumptions, they may miss critical information that could exonerate you as a suspect. For example, a criminal defense investigator might:
- 1. Speak with witnesses other than the victim to verify the details of an event
- 2. Revisit a crime scene to see if the evidence police gathered supports their version of events
- 3. Talk to your friends, family, and coworkers to see if they have information or evidence that could exonerate you or back up your claims
- 4. Collect physical, digital, and other forms of evidence that the police may have missed or ignored It’s not uncommon for law enforcement officials to stop collecting evidence or interviewing witnesses once they have what they think is enough to make an arrest. This is why it’s so important to have a criminal defense investigator working on your case. Their job is to make sure all the evidence is collected and analyzed. Not just the evidence against you.
