What Should I Do If Someone Plants Evidence on Me?Nov 24, 2020, by Criminal Defense in
Many people who commit crimes try to avoid the consequences by placing the blame on others. This might happen if someone plants evidence on you, leaves something related to a crime in your home or car, or otherwise causes the police to suspect you are guilty of their crime.
If you’ve been accused of a crime you didn’t commit, you need to work with an attorney who will make sure you don’t do the time. The police are only interested in finding someone to blame. Don’t let that person be you. Call Davis Law Group today at (313) 818-3238 or use our online contact form to reach out.
When Do People Plant Evidence?
A criminal may plant evidence on you if you’re near them when they commit the crime or if they know you well and think they can get away with it. They may even think you’ll take the fall for their actions. You need to fight back quickly.
People often plant evidence soon after a crime is committed in order to get rid of it. If they’ve stolen property, they may try to store it in your house or storage buildings. They may even ask you if they can keep something on your property without telling you where it came from. Don’t allow anyone to take advantage of you in this way. If you suspect someone is hiding evidence, contact an attorney.
How an Attorney Can Help You If the Police File Charges Against You
If the police find evidence of a crime on you, in your car or house, or on your property, you may be charged with a crime. At the very least, you will be part of an investigation. You should never talk to the police without your attorney present.
The police will try to get you to admit things that may not have happened. They may even twist or manipulate your answers and threaten you if you don’t say what they want to hear. Their goal is to solve a case by whatever means possible.
A criminal defense attorney will make sure the police don’t place blame on you without proper evidence. They will help you answer questions appropriately without incriminating yourself. They can also help you prepare a statement for the prosecution and investigators.
What If We Have to Go to Trial?
A criminal defense attorney is essential if you go to trial. You might think a public defender will do the same thing, but they are often overloaded with cases and fail to give each case the time and attention they need. You deserve the best. A private criminal defense attorney like Maurice Davis will protect your rights from the investigation through trial.
A trial can be time consuming and confusing. The prosecution will try to point all evidence towards you, especially if it was planted on you. You need an attorney who will present a strong defense and prove that you didn’t commit the crime.
