Criminal Law is the body of law that governs infractions against the state, and by extension the people governed by the state. It involves investigation, charging, prosecution, sentencing and the legal procedures that govern those acts. It also includes defense for the person accused. When a person is charged with a crime, it is incumbant on the prosecution to prove the defendant is guilty 'beyond a reasonable doubt'. If you are investigated for a crime, it will be important that all agents involved in the investigation, police especially, follow the procedures prescribed by law. Failure to do so can mean charges will be dropped against you. The attorneys and Starzynski Van Der Jagt, P.C. are trained in defending againsts accusations in criminal law.
