Every defendant who is accused of a crime should be treated fairly within the criminal justice system. All defendants should have the right to be represented by a knowledgeable federal criminal defense attorney who has experience with defending against such charges. All defendants should also benefit from receiving full constitutional protections, they should be viewed as innocent until proven guilty and they should be judged based on the merits of the evidence alone.
Unfortunately, there is mounting evidence to suggest that the justice system is not as fair or unbiased as people would like it to be. In fact, Huffington Post recently published a disturbing article highlighting numerous examples of racism within the criminal justice system.
Unfortunately, racism can be found at every step of the process of involvement with the criminal justice system, beginning from police stops and searches all the way through to sentencing. Let’s take a look at some examples.
So, what does this mean to you? Simply put: You deserve to be treated fairly, regardless of your race, if you are accused of a crime. To get help with fighting charges and to try to ensure the best possible outcome, contact a New York City federal criminal defense attorney at The Law Office of James E. Tyner, PLLC for help as soon as you are charged.
I was referred to Mr. Tyner from a fellow colleague and I was more than impressed with the way he handled my case. From the first consultation, to the final decision, he thoroughly explained each step of the process. There was open communication which I found very helpful. I never hesitated to call and he was always there to answer any and all of my questions or concerns I had. He is very professional, efficient, and detail oriented. I would not hesitate to use Mr. Tyner in the future.
