Young teen charged with alleged murder in Dekalb County

Often times someone is charged with a crime simply because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Even if that is the case however, a strong criminal defense is still needed for that person in order to show their innocence or to mitigate the charges.

This may have been the case for one young man who was arrested and is now facing allegations of murder and possibly other felonies. The incident occurred near Memorial Drive at an apartment complex. A cab was called, allegedly by the young man who is now being charged for the murder. At some point after the cab got there, the driver was shot and killed in what was believed to have started as a robbery. Beyond initially calling for the cab, it is currently unclear what else, if anything, the police investigation has found to allegedly connect the young teen to the murder.

Once someone is accused of a crime, particularly when they are serious charges, help should be sought immediately in order to avoid potentially huge fines or even significant prison time. Sometimes, the allegations could be a case of mistaken identity. If this is the case, the defendant will need a strong alibi which needs to be corroborated by others if possible. If a strong alibi is not available, then often times the evidence the police collected can be attacked if it was either mishandled, went missing or in some other way was mismanaged. However, in order to know the proper defense help is often required immediately for the defendant's protection. Often times, a defendant could say the wrong thing and jeopardize his case without help.

Defending against felonies should never be taken lightly and help should be sought out as soon as possible. With the proper assistance, even the worst criminal allegations can be either overcome or mitigated to lesser crimes.
