In this way, the suspected will be able to show some new evidence in the court which can prove their innocent.
- Going for a Dismissal
You have to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible, as some professional attorneys can try to interfere before the prosecution even files charges. Moreover, an attorney can contact the investigating or arresting official before the case sends to the prosecution, or even try to contact the prosecutor before the filing decision is made. In less criminal cases, there is more chance that your defense lawyer might be able to clarify the incident in such manners that the case never goes for legal proceedings.

Most of the professional attorney takes a decision to wait for the case to play out a role to defend their defendant, as it is considered as the best move for their party. Sometimes, it can take a number of months for the prosecution to identify the situation and insufficient evidence properly to use against the defendant party.
