Every criminal case has its own unique challenges, but there are some criminal charges that are typically more difficult to defend than others. It’s in your best interest to learn which criminal charges are the most difficult to defend so you understand the importance of finding an experienced attorney if you ever face one of these charges.
First Degree Murder
First degree murder is by far the most serious criminal charge that anyone can face in the state of Colorado. Although every murder charge is serious, first degree murder carries the most severe penalties. This is because it involves premeditation, meaning the defendant is accused of planning the murder of his victim in advance.
First degree murder cases can be challenging because of the amount of evidence that may be submitted to the court. Attorneys will most likely need to hire experts that can help them poke holes in the prosecution’s case and get their clients off the hook.
Finding an attorney to defend you can also be difficult because most attorneys have no experience with first degree murder cases. However, criminal defense attorney Scott Reisch has won four separate cases for clients facing first degree murder charges, which is practically unheard of. In each of these four cases, Mr. Reisch’s clients were acquitted of every single charge that was filed against them, including first degree murder. Based on his experience, it’s clear that Mr. Reisch is the best attorney to represent clients that are facing these serious charges.
Crimes Against Children
It can also be difficult to defend clients that are accused of committing crimes against children. Why? These cases can be very emotional since they involve young victims and the prosecutor will play into the emotional aspect of the case. As a result, the jury may find it hard to put their feelings aside to give the defendant a fair chance.
White Collar Crimes
White collar crimes such as fraud and embezzlement can also be more challenging to defend than others. This is because investigations into these crimes are usually incredibly thorough, which means there will be a lot of evidence to analyze. The evidence is typically difficult for jurors to understand because it is financial in nature. This means your criminal defense attorney must find a way to simplify it in order to win your case.
