Protecting Your Rights

You have the right to challenge the police activity involving your arrest. Criminal trial lawyer Kassius Benson is an experience criminal defense attorney who works to protect the rights of clients. There are instances when the violation of a client’s rights will directly affect the outcome of the case. When Mr. Benson discovers these violations, he will file necessary motions in order to safeguard these rights. These actions may include a:

  • motion to suppress evidence seized after an illegal traffic stop, execution of an invalid warrant, and unconstitutional seizure.
  • a motion to disclose the identities of police informants who are often the basis for the warrant.
  • motion to suppress statements that violated your Miranda rights.

The Unfortunate Truth about Weapons Charges

When you are charged with a violent or drug crime involving a gun, you may face mandatory minimum jail sentences. If the court convicts you, it may have no discretion but to sentence you to some time in jail. Sometimes, however, an overzealous prosecutor may add a weapons charge even if the weapon was not yours or was found in a search, but not involved in the crime. Attorney Benson will work to minimize weapons charges when the search or stop that turned them up was unconstitutional or ownership cannot be established. He knows when the police and prosecutors violate your rights or are acting overzealously.

If charged with a violent crime, request an attorney when you are arrested. Do not talk to the police. They are trying to build a case against you.
