Most complainants believe that they can simply ask that charges be dropped against an accused person to halt the criminal process in a criminal prosecution.
It is a common experience for victims of crime that their voices are often overlooked and their opinions are discounted in the criminal justice system by both the police and prosecutors.
We can assist you in navigating the complex judicial system through the expertise of SC Criminal Defence . Whenever charges have been filed but you are not interested in pursuing the case in criminal court, we can advocate on your behalf and advise you of your rights and responsibilities as a complainant.
Our experience allows us to know who to speak with at court, so that your wishes and voice are heard by those who are able to make important decisions for you. It is important that you understand your rights as a witness before you say or do anything in court. What time do you have to attend court? Do you need to meet with the police or the prosecutor before trial if requested? What does a subpoena entail? If you fail to attend court, what happens?
If you have questions about your rights in the criminal justice system, SC Criminal Defence can provide the answers. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call (647) 561-4020.
