What Are My Rights In A Felony Case?

It is always a shock to hear how little people, incredibly educated people, know about their rights when they are being investigated or charged with a felony.  Part of the problem is that many of our clients have never had any experience with the criminal justice system before – we understand.

Your three most important rights, in specific order, are (1) the right to hire an attorney, (2) the right to remain silent, and (3) the right to a jury trial.

The right to an attorney is your most important right.  If you are looking at this webpage you have probably already spoken with the police, or with someone about the subject matter of your investigation.  It is important from this point forward that you remain silent.

With an experienced attorney defending you your next substantial right that you need to plan on invoking is your right to a jury trial.  This is a powerful tool that can be used to vindicate yourself from these charges.

Recently we defended a 50 year old man from robbery charges, the prosecutor wanted him to go to prison for at least 2 years.  The jury returned a verdict, rightly, of not guilty to all charges.  (See State v. Kitko, Medina Common Pleas).

Call (330) 752-6711 and ask to speak to me, Joseph Patituce, about the specifics of your case.  I promise that the call is confidential and without any obligation.  If I do not agree to take your matter on for any reason I will make sure to refer you to a skilled attorney that will.
