Defense against Mistaken Identity in Criminal Cases
On the surface, the criminal justice system may seem like a well-oiled machine that serves perfect justice to those who are accused of crimes. Unfortunately, that is not necessarily the case. Simply put, humans make mistakes. Witnesses and victims make mistakes. Unfortunately, cases of mistaken identity mean that the wrong person may be accused of a crime. Samuel Gregory can help. With more than 20 years of criminal defense experience in New York and New Jersey, he knows how to fight cases of mistaken identity.
Have you or a loved one been the victim of mistaken identity and charged with a criminal offense? As soon as you enlist criminal defense lawyer Samuel Gregory, he will go to work protecting your innocence. He will dig deep in search of every possible opportunity to show that you are not the person who committed the crime in question.
Mistaken identity can be a problem in any type of state or federal criminal defense case, including:
- Sexual assault/rape
- Robbery and burglary
- Drug charges
- Assault and battery
Sam knows how easily a case of mistaken identity can happen. He has put a great deal of effort into understanding identity theory, memory recall, the influence of police officers and other factors that come into play in these cases.
Mistaken identity can happen too easily. A victim of a crime, such as robbery or sexual assault, may be shown a series of photos. The images of the photos may remain in that person's mind, affecting the choice when faced with the prospect of picking a person out of a lineup. The end result: The police get the wrong person.
Sam uses aggressive and creative methods to demonstrate the innocence of his clients in these cases. He knows how to put forth the proper argument to see that a crime does not result in an additional victim: a victim of mistaken identity charged with a crime.
