PRETRIAL MOTIONS

pretrialIn the hands of an experienced criminal defense attorney, a pretrial motion can be a powerful tool to exclude certain types of evidence from a future trial or to get the case dismissed altogether. Here are only a few examples of pretrial motions a defense lawyer might bring:

 

1- Asking the judge to exclude evidence that is considered to be hearsay or irrelevant to the charges actually filed by the State. Often, the State will file different charges from those charged by the police at the time of arrest.

 

2- Requesting that the defendant’s confession be excluded from the trial because law enforcement failed to read the defendant his Miranda rights before questioning him.

 

3- Asking the judge to dismiss the case because law enforcement did not have probable cause to make an arrest.

 

The Law Office of Attorney Bradley S. Sherman handles a wide range of criminal charges, including white collar crimes, all DUI offenses, all drug offenses, all sexual crimes, all theft and property offenses, all juvenile offenses and all homicide crimes such as capital death penalty murder, DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide.
