The nature of allegations of sexual offenses can be extremely unpredictable. Forensic science such as DNA evidence plays an important part in sex crimes cases in Michigan and elsewhere, and defending such charges can be extremely complicated. Unfortunately, blind faith in any area of forensic technology is dangerous. The President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology recently commissioned a report on the accuracy of results obtained from analysis of mixed DNA from multiple individuals.
When someone is accused of sexual assault, the case often involves eyewitness testimony supported by DNA analysis or other scientific evidence. Particularly when there are problems with the eyewitness testimony, prosecutors often rely on DNA or other scientific evidence to support the victim's story.
Anyone who has watched a police crime drama on TV knows that you are given your Miranda rights before questioning. Two key things your Miranda warnings tell you are that you have the right to have an attorney and the right to remain silent.
When people in Michigan or elsewhere are in trouble with the law, they may turn out to be their own worst enemies. It is only natural to try to talk one's way out of trouble when accused of a crime, but it may be more appropriate to let a legal representative handle the defense. Navigating the defense of white collar crimes, such as insurance fraud, is complicated and may need a professional to determine the most suitable strategy.
