Reasons Criminal Defense Attorneys Should Hire a Private Investigator

Private investigators are fully trained to take the time to understand the charges and laws associated with a specific crime when an attorney uses a private investigator in a criminal defense investigation. Once the private investigator develops a concrete understanding of the case in question, he or she will go over all the materials that the defense team has received from the prosecutor.

Throughout the criminal defense investigation, the private investigator will scour routine police reports, copies of evidence, photographs, phone messages and witness statements related to the case, with the ultimate goal being to determine whether or not there are any inconsistencies from one witness to the next.

Additionally, a private investigator may re-visit or recreate the crime scene to see if there were any details that may have been overlooked. He or she may also decide to interview witnesses to see if their stories have changed or to verify that they do not have anything else that motivated their statements against the defendant.

If the private investigator unearths any inconsistencies or ulterior motives, they may be able to be used as a part of the client’s defense. By the same merit, if the private investigator finds out that there are other witnesses who had not come forward, he or she can then investigate these developments further.  Normally, the private investigator is looking for “holes” or “gaps” in the body of evidence—physical or verbal information which seems to be missing–or for inconsistencies in the evidence or in the conclusions prosecutors are drawing from the evidence. The investigator will work with the trial lawyer to explore options and methods of investigation.

Why do I need a Criminal Investigator?

A crime is an intended action that is against the rules of law for a community. A criminal trial in which punishment is pursued by the government differs from a civil trial, which involves individuals debating their rights. Criminal acts, such as sexual assault, physical assault, murder, theft, property damage, and vandalism, would call for investigators to gather evidence so that charges could be made.
