The police can really help prosecutors find witness to crimes, and they do a great job using evidence to find suspects, but sometimes something is missing. The defense will realize that some key evidence, or a key witness, just isn’t there. This is enough for a defense attorney to create reasonable doubt.
A key component of a criminal defense investigation is the private investigator. It becomes their job to find this key witness or evidence that can create reasonable doubt. Reasonable doubt causes the jury to not know for sure that a defendant is guilty of the crime they have been charged.
When private investigators are used by attorneys they make sure to understand everything about the charges and the law related to the crime committed. When they understand the case they go over everything the defense team received from the prosecutor.
Throughout the criminal defense investigation the private investigator looks through the police reports, the paperwork, and all the evidence, photographs, phone messages, and statements related to the case. Their goal is to look for any inconsistencies between witnesses, or false conclusions drawn from evidence.
The private investigator may also choose to visit the crime scene and see if anything was missed by the police. They may also interview witnesses themselves to verify their stories and ensure they were not swayed in to speaking negatively of the defendant.
Any inconsistency or ulterior motive discovered during the course of this criminal defense investigation may become part of the defense for the client. They are also able to look into anything they discover, such as new evidence or witnesses.
