Getting wrongfully accused of a crime can be an extremely scary experience, especially if you don’t know what to expect. Nobody wants to be put in jail for something they didn’t do. Our private investigative firm strongly believes that innocent people deserve to feel protected from false convictions. Are you currently facing charges for a crime you had nothing to do with? If so, you could benefit from hiring a private investigator who can help you and your attorney find evidence to prove your innocence. Continue reading to learn more about this, or reach out to one of our Connecticut Criminal Investigators today to find out how we can help you!


We understand that getting accused of something you didn’t do can be both frustrating and frightening. If the police ever question you about a crime, it’s a good idea to contact an attorney before speaking with any officers. The good news is you likely won’t need to worry about costly legal fees yet because many lawyers work on a “no win-no fee” basis. In some cases, you might not need to take further action even if you’re a suspect in a criminal case. However, things change once you are officially charged with a crime.

If you’re facing criminal charges and you’re innocent, you’ll need evidence to prove your innocence. Many people choose to hire private investigators who can effectively find evidence and analyze their findings from an unbiased, third-party perspective. You can greatly benefit from hiring an investigator who has your best interests in mind.


It’s normal to be scared of seeming suspicious to law enforcement. The biggest things to avoid include:

  • Destroying evidence
  • Talking to the victim or witnesses
  • Speaking with law enforcement without your attorney there
  • Submitting to testing, such as providing DNA, without asking your attorney first


As stated earlier, private investigators can help you find evidence that effectively proves your innocence. A professional will have extensive knowledge of wrongful accusations plus all the tools and skills you’ll need throughout your criminal case. We understand your frustration with this experience when you’re innocent, but you’re not alone. Our firm and many others are determined to help innocent victims of wrongful accusation cases.

If you’re currently fighting false charges, you deserve an investigative professional who can help you protect your freedom. Thankfully, Advanced Investigations is on your side! Contact our highly experienced private investigative team today for an initial consultation.
