Arrests are reaching historic levels throughout Chicagoland, including in cities throughout DuPage and Kane Counties. When a person is arrested for a crime, they may be innocent or they may be guilty, but one thing is for sure: They have rights and the police must act within the law or the evidence can be deemed inadmissible in court.
All criminal charges should be taken seriously. When someone faces a felony charge it is even more important to do what is necessary to build a strong defense. This is because the penalties tied to a conviction can be harsh and in some situations include life in prison. For most people creating a solid defense involves the assistance of a criminal defense lawyer.
