How Long Will Court be?

Hempstead Tx Courthouse

Once a person is charged with a crime, the next steps are mostly a long string of courtroom visits. How long this takes nobody really knows. The attorney who is hired will need to collect all the evidence that he is allowed to get in order to properly represent the client. This usually takes a few months to do. Sometimes certain evidence is very difficult to get ahold of and is held up by a certain agency or agencies policy. On one recent case an attorney was not able to get an important video for a DWI case for almost 2 years after the DWI arrest took place. It was very important in the resolution of the case and the attorney would not have been properly doing his job had he not gotten the video. It had critical evidence that needed to be reviewed.

Other hold ups can be in the negotiation process. In order to get a resolution to a case the lawyers from each side need to consult with each other. This can be delayed without all the information required in order to bargain. The defense attorney is not in a good bargaining position if he or she does not know the strengths or weaknesses of the case. Being able to quickly respond and point out a particular issue can be of huge importance during negotiations.

Search and Seizure

Terrorism Fears and Effects On Privacy

Privacy is a large part of the ideology of the United States. Unreasonable search and seizure by the various government’s actually inspired the constitutional protections of the citizens of the U.S.  Over that last several years terrorism has spilled into various countries. This includes the United States.  Whenever this topic is discussed, the idea of freedom comes under attack. Fear creates the idea of erosion of our search and seizure laws. This topic advocates weakening our privacy as U.S. citizens.  This is evident in our public places such as airports, government offices, and roadways. Many of the constitutional violations that occur for the common person happens on the roadway.

Traffic stops are typically critically analyzed by criminal defense attorneys.  And if not, they should be.  The laws are shaped by appellate courts on what is acceptable reasoning for the police to stop a person. The law is presented in the lower court and more deeply analyzed by upper the court justice opinions. An attorney will present his or her defense, objections, and arguments in the lower trial court. If he or she loses the case can be appealed to an appellate court and an argument made in a brief.

The desire to push the limits of search and seizure laws are very often used to target individual liberties. Police car videos come in extremely helpful for both sides in court. The video camera does not lie.  Whereas witnesses often do fabricate, exaggerate, and lie in court.  This often leaves the accused stuck having to prove his or her innocence.  Perjury is a serious offense. It happens quite a bit unfortunately in court.  The rationale is that a law enforcement’s personal opinion of justice is more important than the truth.  When lies become more important than the truth real justice never prevails.
