If you have been charged with a crime, you must be proactive in your defense regardless of whether you feel that you are innocent or guilty. It is important to know your legal rights during these trying situations. First, always remember that you are presumed innocent until found guilty, and you must be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
