Sometimes, Fort Lauderdale residents are tempted to try to defend themselves in criminal court. In almost all circumstances, this is a huge mistake for those trying to avoid the dire consequences of a criminal conviction. Because of the complex legal system and the ways in which prosecutors know how to use that system to their advantage, a knowledgeable defense attorney is nearly always necessary to having a chance at a winning defense in court.
An example of why having a Fort Lauderdale defense attorney at your side when accused of a crime is a good idea can be seen in a recent case where prosecutors brought more charges when the accused opted to fight the single fraud charge that had been filed against him. It had originally appeared that the accused had agreed to a plea agreement, but when he changed his mind and sought instead to fight the charge in court, he was then indicted on eight additional charges. Each charge could mean another 20 years behind bars if the man is convicted.
