There are many ways that a criminal charge can be resolved. A deferred prosecution is one of the more favorable of those ways.
Iowa Criminal Charges
A Person is Innocent Until Proven Guilty in Criminal Cases
One of the most basic principles in the American legal system is that a person who is accused of a crime is innocent until proven guilty. This principle is the bedrock of our criminal justice justice system, and should be remembered by everyone who is involved in a criminal case.
Handling Iowa Criminal Charges from Out-of-State
Many people charged with criminal and traffic offenses in Iowa are from out of state (and sometimes quite far from the county in Iowa where the charges are pending). In such a case, it is prudent for the out-of-state person with the pending charge to seek an attorney in Iowa. At Puryear Law, we represent many such clients from out of state.
