How This New Trend In Criminal Defense Could Affect You
COVID-19 is affecting every industry and changing the way that we conduct our day to day lives. It’s also having far-reaching effects on the judicial system, as it’s slowing down processes and delaying jury trials.
Consequently, if a trial gets delayed, it may create a situation where witnesses start moving, dying, or becoming unavailable to testify. The result of any of these things happening is that a defendant may be found not guilty.
However, the disadvantage is that a defendant may have to spend more time in jail waiting for a solution to a case, but the delay turns into an advantage if they can get out of jail in the end.
Therefore, if you find yourself, or someone you care about, arrested, you may discover that getting out of jail is easier. Unfortunately, it may be slower than before the pandemic.
So, prepare to wait longer than you would otherwise expect, and try to be patient. The majority of the time, the current circumstances will benefit my clients as most of them get out of jail. So if you need a defense lawyer get in touch today.
