You Should Be Presumed Innocent Until Proven Guilty
The prosecution may claim to have convincing evidence against you – but can they prove it? The burden of proof is on the government prosecutor to demonstrate convincingly without room for doubt that the person who has been charged did, in fact, commit the crimes as charged.
Kent Balduchi, of Balduchi Law Office, PC, has a long history of rescuing people from dangerous situations. As a former firefighter and paramedic, he learned long ago to identify and confront critical factors in an emergency. He brings this perspective to clients from Des Moines, Ankeny and across Iowa.
Under Investigation? Already Arrested?
Being charged with a crime at the municipal, state or federal level is a frightening experience, and with good reason. The outcome of a criminal case can mean the difference between freedom and incarceration for months or years to come. A criminal conviction will leave you with a criminal record that can complicate your life in ways you cannot yet anticipate.
Many people who never expected to find themselves in trouble with the law are blindsided with legal issues and practical complications after an arrest alleging a crime such as:
- Assault and battery involving friends or strangers or domestic abuse involving domestic partners or close family members
- Drunk driving (first offense or repeat DUI offense) or drug possession or distribution
Whether you suspect that you are being targeted in a law enforcement investigation or have already been arrested, you deserve the skills of a thorough defense advocate. Additionally, Mr. Balduchi is actively associated with the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) and works with its members on a variety of sensitive legal matters regarding firearms rights.
Your Lawyer Can Make A Large Difference
Remember that no criminal defense attorney can promise a specific case outcome. However, a defense lawyer with a track record of success can inspire confidence in a defendant and put prosecutors on notice. Prosecutors generally respect the testimony of a defense attorney with a record of honest, ethical defense of the accused.
The sooner you have an advocate dedicated to defending you in the face of criminal charges, the better your chances are for a favorable outcome. If criminal charges have not yet been filed, a skilled lawyer may be able to prevent them from occurring at all.
