Why are confessions so important to the police? It is simply this: they are a quick way to solve a crime and close a case. Often, it saves the police the hassle of doing extensive police work - searching for genuine physical evidence, interviewing potential witnesses, reviewing documents, applying for search warrants, etc.
if you, or a loved one, is accused of a crime:
City v. SA
Sometimes clients are referred to our office because the stakes are high and the outcome of the trial could permanently effect a person's livelihood. That was the case when SA was referred to our office from a prominent Illinois attorney who knew that this case would require special attention for two reasons: SA had an Illinois license; and SA had a commercial driver's license.
State of Wisconsin v. CJR
When C was charged with 26 counts of Felony Embezzlement, she thought her life was over. Based on the allegations, the prosecutor believed that she stole over $22,000.00 from her employer. She faced over 150 years in prison if convicted. C had hired another attorney who had advised her to quickly take a deal with the hopes that they could convince the judge not to go along with the DA's prison sentence recommendation.
County of S v. TP
Mr. P was driving home one night after enjoying dinner at a supper club. He had two glasses of wine and did not feel impaired. However, the police pulled him over for speeding and simple traffic violation turned into a life-changing nightmare for Mr. P.
