Sonoma County Criminal Defense Attorney

Ensuring Your Constitutional Rights Are Protected

The California and U.S. Constitutions have many safeguards that protect Americans from potential abuses by their government. Abuses and mistakes can occur anywhere, however, including in Santa Rosa or elsewhere in Sonoma County and the North Bay Area.

As a defendant in any criminal proceeding, from drug possession and DUI to manslaughter, you have a right to: Hear your Miranda warnings, which include being notified of your right to a criminal defense lawyer; be free from being imposed with an unreasonable bail amount; know the reason for your arrest, plus hear the probable cause behind it or see a warrant; and be free from evidence obtained without warrant or probable cause.
If police collect evidence in violation of your rights, this evidence could be excluded at your trial. Your criminal lawyer must request a suppression hearing. There, the defense attorney can argue that evidence was obtained without a warrant and should be excluded, while the prosecutor would set forth reasons why the evidence was lawfully collected. If the criminal defense lawyer can win the suppression hearing and get evidence thrown out, the prosecutor might have to dismiss the charges due to a lack of evidence. Get a free consultation to discover if this is an option for you.
