How does a plea negotiation work?

Many Fresno readers are probably aware that the vast majority of criminal cases throughout the country are resolved through a plea agreement. This doesn't mean that a solid criminal defense option doesn't exist in all of these cases - it just means that, in many cases, defendants who are facing all types of different criminal charges opt to end their cases quickly and agree to lighter penalties as a result.

Alleged encounter leads to sexual assault and kidnapping charges

Being accused of kidnapping sounds like something that only happens in the movies. However, it is not impossible for a misunderstanding or similar situation to result in such accusations and having to secure a criminal defense. Many of our Fresno readers have probably heard the news reports about an alleged attempted kidnapping that took place in nearby Hanford. A 29-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the case.

A defense against assault charges

Most people in Fresno probably try to avoid conflict whenever they can. However, as the saying goes, "life happens." Sometimes a person can find themselves in an unexpected situation, and things can get tense. If an argument becomes physical, or if there is a threat of physical violence, there is a chance that one party or the other could be facing battery or assault charges.

What is the Fresno County 'Crime Scene Unit'?

In some criminal cases the only evidence available when it comes time for a trial is eyewitness testimony. In these cases a witness will testify to what they allegedly saw or heard -- something that they personally experienced. In some cases, eyewitness testimony is all it takes for the prosecution to get a criminal conviction. However, in many cases there will be some articles of physical evidence that need to be preserved for presentation in court. So, who collects and documents physical evidence from crime scenes in Fresno County?
