Fortunately, you can turn to Advanced Investigations, as our Connecticut Criminal Investigators can help your attorney obtain pertinent evidence to clear your name and hold the correct party accountable. Please continue reading to learn how our private investigators can help protect you from a wrongful conviction. 

What should I do if I’m wrongfully accused of a crime?

While being wrongfully accused of a crime you didn’t commit can be frustrating and overwhelming, it’s crucial to know how to protect your rights and maximize your chances of avoiding a false conviction. Firstly, if the police ask you to come in for questioning or take you into custody, you should invoke your constitutional rights to remain silent and consult an attorney before speaking to an officer.

If you’re facing criminal charges, you must obtain as much evidence as possible to prove your innocence. The prosecution is burdened with proving your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. This means that the proof presented by the prosecution must be so convincing that there’s no logical explanation for a jury’s verdict other than the criminal defendant’s guilt. This is the highest standard of proof in criminal law, designed to ensure individuals are acquitted unless their guilt has been proven beyond any possible question. However, innocent individuals often slip through the cracks when there is a lack of crime investigation. When diligent investigations are performed, it can help avoid wrongful convictions.

How can a private investigator help avoid a wrongful conviction?

Although law enforcement officers will conduct their investigations, it’s beneficial to enlist the services of a private investigator who can offer impartial research. Private investigators can provide more time and resources to help you obtain evidence proving your innocence. They can focus their energy on a specific case and perform unbiased investigations not restricted by jurisdiction. Private investigators have the top resources at their disposal. Ultimately, they can help you by using their expertise to find clues that lead to the truth. This can include interviewing witnesses, gathering unbiased factors, scouring police reports, obtaining surveillance footage, and looking into the backgrounds of people allegedly committing the crime.

If you’re fighting false charges, hiring an investigative professional from Advanced Investigations who can help protect your rights and freedom is in your best interest.
