Being charged with a crime can be stressful.


A criminal conviction may have significant consequences. Persons charged with crimes have certain rights that are guaranteed by the United States Constitution, including a presumption of innocence. If you are facing criminal charges, including felony or misdemeanor charges, then contact our criminal defense lawyer in Fairfax VA at Rudolphi Law.

What rights do you have in a criminal case?

When you are facing criminal charges, you have a variety of rights. These include:

  • The right to a trial
  • The right to confront and cross-examine witnesses
  • The right to remain silent
  • The right to be represented by an attorney
  • Due process rights
  • The right to review the evidence in your case

These rights cannot be denied, and it is important to understand what these rights include. If your rights are violated during the case, or if rights were violated during your arrest and investigation of the case, then there may be defenses available.
