What happens if you are accused of a crime in Las Vegas?
If you have been accused of a crime, you will have to appear in court. The accused, known as the defendant, and their attorney, will need to present a strategic argument that attempts to challenge the validity and sufficiency of the prosecution’s evidence. This is not the same as ending up in Las Vegas traffic court, as that is considered a criminal charge.
Common Defense Strategies
The type of defense that you and your attorney choose to pursue will depend, in part, on the crime you are being accused of committing, as well as the evidence available to you. There are numerous types of defense strategies, including:
- Affirmative defense: An attempt to strike down the prosecution’s evidence by showing that it is false.
- Insanity defense: The defense states that you committed the alleged crime but had not known that what you did was wrong. To successfully use this defense, you must have had a severe mental disease or defect at the time the crime was committed. Clear and convincing evidence that you have, or had, such a mental issue resulted in your misunderstanding that your actions were wrong.
- Coercion and duress: A defense that says you were forced to commit a crime because you were threatened with unlawful force. This unlawful force can merely the threat of unlawful force. The force, or threat of force, does not even have to be threatened against the individual accused of the crime. Rather, it could have been used against, or threatened against, another individual, such as a family member. This defense cannot be invoked if your reckless actions put you in the situation that caused duress.
- Abandonment and withdrawal: Also referred to as renunciation, this defense states that you were going to commit a crime or be an accomplice to a crime but then decided to abandon any involvement. In addition, your actions prior to withdrawing from the crime must not have in any way contributed to the crime, or you must have notified the police in advanced of the crime.
