Being accused of a crime can be a frightening experience. Being convicted is even worse. If you're convicted of a crime, that conviction will never go away. If the crime in question was a felony, many rights you once took for granted will be taken away from you permanently. You may lose your driver's license, professional licenses, scholarships, your right to vote, or your right to carry a firearm.
However, individuals charged with a crime are innocent until proven guilty. In order to be convicted of a crime, the case against them must be proven beyond any reasonable doubt. It's the job of a criminal defense lawyer to find those areas of doubt that can help keep an innocent person out of jail, prevent an overly harsh sentence, or even get a case dismissed if insufficient evidence is presented or the prosecution fails to follow proper procedure.
