You are an important part of your criminal defense case

For people who are facing criminal charges of any sort, one very important factor in their case is determining what defense strategy they will use for their case. Determining what defense strategy to use is something that requires some knowledge of the laws that pertain to your case. It also requires investigating the evidence that is used in your case, as well as considering your side of the story. Trying to use a one-size-fits-all defense for every case is sort of like trying to fit a large square peg into a small round hole. We understand that your case needs personalized attention.

What are the possible consequences of a sex crime conviction?

Living in Tennessee when you are a convicted sex offender means that you have to follow a specific set of laws that are meant only for sex offenders. These laws cover a variety of aspects of life, including special laws for driver's licenses, work release programs and professional options. Understanding these is vital for anyone who is classified as a sex offender in Tennessee.

Sex offenders have special restrictions for Halloween night

Halloween is coming up soon. While that might bring a smile to many Tennessee residents, the holiday means new restrictions for sex offenders. Tennessee is one of the states that passed "No Candy" laws that forbid sex offenders from passing out candy on this festive night. Other restrictions might apply for some sex offenders, so learning the expectations and regulations is vital for any sex offender in Tennessee.

Consider each option carefully for your criminal defense strategy

One of the aspects of facing criminal charges that can make defendants uncomfortable is not knowing what the outcome of the case might be. Some defendants might opt to fight the charges against them for as long as possible. Those defendants might decide that they want a jury of their peers to hear their case and to decide if they are guilty or innocent. Other defendants might opt to seek out a plea bargain for their case. We know that this decision is a very important one for all defendants.

What happens when you aren't the only defendant?

It's a common scenario in criminal defense: two or more people are charged related to the same crime or group of crimes. When you aren't the only defendant, you have to consider what the other person might do or say in your defense strategy. It's also probably not in your best interest to share an attorney or strategy with another person.
