Understanding Criminal Law

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of legal codes that form our state and federal laws. When you’ve been arrested, indicted, or charged with any crime, you should immediately consider retaining a lawyer. The more serious the potential consequences of being found guilty, the more critical it is to have a good lawyer, whether the crime falls under state laws, federal laws, or both.
The vast majority of crimes are charged under state law, which means that state criminal courts handle them. Indiana’s state code covers hundreds of different crimes, from murder, rape, and child molestation to possession of illegal substances, gun crimes, and gang activity. Federal crimes include drug and human trafficking, hate crimes, racketeering, and organized crime.
It’s important to note that criminal cases face a higher burden of proof than civil cases. No matter what you’ve been charged with, and regardless of whether your charges are state or federal, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty of these crimes.
This level of doubt is a very high bar to pass, and if you have a good lawyer on your side, it’s even higher.
