Defenses for Auto Theft Charges
There may be physical evidence that links you to the vehicle in question, such as a fingerprint or DNA. There may even be video footage of the crime taking place, but the manner in which evidence is collected and processed can be closely scrutinized for any mistakes or issues that your lawyer can use to influence the outcome of your case.
For example, if you were the victim of an unlawful search and seizure, any evidence obtained at this time may be suppressed so it is not used against you in court. In considering issues such as this, it is important that you work with an experienced attorney who also has the resources to handle your case.
