About A General Law Office Of Shaffer Cormell

Top-Rated California Criminal Defense Attorney

Being charged with a crime is a stressful and unsettling experience. Criminal defendants are often uncertain as to the rights that they have or the actions that they can take. If you are charged with a crime, whether it is a felony or a misdemeanor, it is critical to retain a skilled Riverside County criminal defense lawyer to help you develop a strong defense in hopes of protecting your liberties. Shaffer T. Cormell is a proficient defense attorney with more than two decades of experience representing criminal defendants in California courts. Mr. Cormell understands the gravity of criminal charges and can provide you with a comprehensive strategy in pursuit of a successful outcome under the facts of your case. Mr. Cormell serves residents of communities such as Blythe, Banning, Riverside, Murrieta, Indio, Palm Springs, Coachella, Joshua Tree, Hemet, San Bernardino, Fontana, Rancho Cucamonga, Victorville, Barstow, Brawley, El Centro, Winterhaven, and other cities throughout Riverside, San Bernardino, and Imperial Counties.


Rights Afforded to Criminal Defendants

Simply because you are charged with a crime does not mean that you will be convicted or that you need to plead guilty. Under the California and U.S. Constitutions, criminal defendants are afforded several rights to help prevent their liberties from being unjustly taken away. For example, you have a right against self-incrimination. This is granted under the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and protects you from being forced to make incriminating statements against yourself. The right extends from your initial arrest and interrogation through the length of your trial. You also are protected from unreasonable searches and seizures under the Fourth Amendment, which means that you cannot be searched without a warrant or probable cause. If you are unconstitutionally searched, the State may be precluded from introducing any evidence obtained during the search against you at trial. A criminal defense attorney in Riverside County could bring a motion to suppress in this situation.
