Hi, everyone. Today, we’re going to talk about the three things the prosecutor doesn’t want you to know about your case, when you’re charged with a crime. This is Christina Williams with Just Criminal Law.
Speaker 2
00:00:11:05 – 00:00:12:21
And this is David Mann, legal storytelling specialist. All right, so three things the prosecutor doesn’t want you to know. What’s the first one?
Speaker 1
00:00:19:15 – 00:00:20:05
Well, they’re not that familiar with the facts of your case. So prosecutors have a lot of cases that they’re in charge of and they don’t look that closely at every single case.
Speaker 2
00:00:34:16 – 00:00:35:03
Hmm. So, you would think that the prosecutor would, you know, really know your case in detail. I mean, that’s sort of what you see on TV, right? And the criminal cases; it’s like they have all the time in the world to study just your case. But you’re saying that’s not true.
Speaker 1
00:00:49:09 – 00:00:49:28
No. A lot of times, they just have a familiarity with it. They’ve maybe read the report and that’s about it. Made sure that if they were asking for a warrant, that there was at least some evidence of a crime. And then the case gets charged and they move onto their next case and they really don’t look at it again until the defense attorney brings something to their attention or files a motion and requires them to sit down and look at it.
Speaker 2
00:01:19:22 – 00:01:22:13
So they have lots and lots of cases and yours might sort of get lost in the shuffle.
Speaker 1
00:01:26:00 – 00:01:28:09
Yes, yours is definitely going to get lost in the shuffle. And the other concerning thing is a lot of times, law enforcement officers will geet the report of a crime and they’ll talk to a couple of people and they’ll decide, you know, ‘I think we have probable cause here for a crime,’ and they’ll just send it over to the prosecutor and figure, well, the attorneys will look into this more closely. But that’s not necessarily what happens.
Speaker 2
00:01:52:06 – 00:01:52:21
Yeah. And the client, the defendant, really gets sort of the short end of that because they might end up with a really bad sentence or fine or something when they could have gotten around it if their prosecutor had been more attentive.
Speaker 1
00:02:09:02 – 00:02:10:24
Right. And then there’s the point in time when it comes in front of the judge and the client might think, ‘Okay, the judge is going to save the day. They’re going to really know what’s going on here.’ But that’s not the case either. The judge knows less about your case than anyone, unless it goes to trial. Then, the judge learns what both parties say that the facts are. But the moral of the story is you need to get an attorney who’s going to dig into the evidence and actually spend time, you know, looking to see what else shouldd have been done, or what else they can do to almost disprove you did the crime, which is not their job. But that’s kind of the reaility of it sometimes.
Speaker 2
00:02:56:16 – 00:02:58:20
So that’s one thing. You know, they don’t really know your case. What are the other two?
Speaker 1
00:03:01:26 – 00:03:02:16
Well, the other thing that a lot of times happens in these cases is, they’re having a hard time getting the witnesses to show up or talk to them. So a lot of times, they rely on testimony for evidence as to what happened or testimony in order to get, you know, say some piece of evidence, a concrete piece of evidence into the record. And if they can’t come up with these witnesses, then they can’t prove their case. So, they aren’t going to let me know that, ‘Hey, we’re having a hard time locating some of these people to prove our case.’ They’ll just kind of let things flow along as long as they will, and hope to get the client to plead guilty to something.
Speaker 2
00:03:51:20 – 00:03:53:28
Wow. That really is surprising. So not only do they not know your case, maybe all that well, they maybe can’t even get the witnesses that they’re saying. In other words, they’re sort of bluffing on that. So what is the third one?
Speaker 1
00:04:02:24 – 00:04:07:00
Well, the third one is that they, a lot of times, will give an initial plea deal. And it’s, you know, what they would hope to get. And they’re really willing to come way off of that offer and give you a much better deal. But a lot of times, what the defense attorney needs to do is, you know, have their own investigation. Which is why we have an investigator full time on our staff, here at Just Criminal Law. And we have that investigator go out and find that the witnesses aren’t cooperating or that law enforcement should have done a lot of things that they didn’t do. And that’s going to make it hard for the state to prove their case. So, we have our own investigation done and, at that point in time, we can get a much better deal. And we just have to show the prosecutor, ‘Hey, we know you have problems with your case, and how about we come to an agreement, or how about you dismiss it?’
Speaker 2
00:05:03:26 – 00:05:05:15
Well, that sounds like a ;pt pf attention, really. So it sounds like a lot of defense attorneys don’t necessarily put that amount of attention into their clients, but you do. So if someone wants to get ahold of you, how do they do that?
Speaker 1
00:05:16:24 – 00:05:17:07
