As criminal defence lawyers, it it our priority to provide our clients specialised and personalised representation before the courts. There are various criminal defences that may be used to fight criminal charges. Depending on the circumstances surrounding an alleged offending, a lawyer can evaluate your case and identify just the right defences that can be used in order to achieve the best outcome in court.
Charges are Statute Barred
The accused may raise the defence of charges being statute barred if the accused was charged already after a certain time limit. Depending on the statute or law for a specific offence, it’s possible that charging an accused for a certain offence may no more be allowed if a certain period has already passed.
