Pretrial Defense Motions

Criminal arrests and charges can impact a defendant’s long-term future.  An excellent criminal defense attorney knows specific strategies and defenses to use when representing clients against the Commonwealth.  Many of these defenses are in the form of pretrial motions filed by the defense attorney on his or her client’s behalf.

The Commonwealth must prove the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  Prosecutors attempt to establish guilt by using evidence gathered by the police.  If the police obtained their evidence by unlawful tactics, that evidence is not allowed in court.

Illegally-obtained evidence includes evidence seized through police misconduct or coercion.  The defense attorney files a motion to suppress this type of evidence.  A motion to suppress will result in a court hearing regarding the legality of questionable evidence.

If a motion to suppress is allowed by a judge and important evidence is suppressed, the prosecutor may be forced to dismiss the case.

Types of evidence subject to a motion to suppress includes:

  • Physical evidence, objects;
  • Identification from a suggestive photo lineup; and
  • Involuntary statements from defendants.

Talking to the Police

Individuals who have been charged with crimes or are the subject of a criminal investigation should obey the following rules to limit their potential criminal liability:

  • Do not speak with anyone, especially the police or their investigators, before consulting with a criminal defense attorney;
  • Never comment on any accusations or charges made against you, and never offer any thoughts or opinions about the circumstances surrounding those allegations;
  • Do not post any comment about your criminal charges on social media.  Police officers look at suspects’ social media accounts and may use any statements you make against you in court; and
  • Do not submit to a polygraph as part of an ongoing investigation.

Before making any decisions, seek the advice of a professional.  Attorney Chris Spring can help you whether you are facing charges, under investigation, or dealing with a probation violation.  There is never a risk to you in talking with Attorney Spring, so call his office now.
