Proficient counselors stand up for their clients’ constitutional rights

Criminal charges come with harsh penalties, including incarceration. Fortunately, the U.S. Constitution ensures a number of rights for criminal defendants. These protections are designed to establish a fair and balanced criminal justice system. But in practice, people accused of crimes often have their constitutional rights violated to the detriment of their case. But, with Rasheed & Associates, you get a determined advocate to defend your constitutional rights.

In criminal cases, the Constitution grants the accused defendant a number of rights, including:

  • Presumption of innocence — Defendants charged with crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • Freedom from self-incrimination — Defendants have the right to remain silent. No one can compel a defendant to testify against himself.
  • Freedom from double jeopardy — The same defendant cannot be charged more than once for the same crime.
  • Trial by jury — Defendants have the right to a public and speedy trial by a jury of their peers. The jury must be chosen at random, with challenges available to the prosecuting and defense attorneys.
  • Attorney representation — Defendants have the right to legal representation even if they cannot afford to pay for an attorney.

Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, you have constitutional rights. Rasheed & Associates, P.C. fights to protect your rights and puts forth a vigorous defense.
