Criminal Investigations

Investigations for criminal, Appeals; writ of habeas corpus, and homicide (661) 299-7212

Most CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS begin with the Law Enforcement before a person arrested, they call it a Pre-arrest investigation.  In a Pre-arrest investigation, it usually begins where they get a report of criminal activity, or sometimes the Law Enforcement determines it on their own by uncovering evidence during their pre-arrest investigation.  They decide if an arrest should be made once their investigation reveals that a crime has been committed.
Law Enforcement may arrest the suspect or present it to the prosecuting attorney who usually is of the District Attorney’s Office.

The court must arrest the defendant and hold an initial appearance. The court informs the defendant of their charges, advising them of their rights to remain silent and obtain counsel.

This is a good time to hire a private investigator, you can talk to your investigator and tell your detective what happened. While you are not in the position to be outside of the jail, the private investigator is able to start on your investigation to start putting your case together while you’re working on finding the right attorney for your case. Most CRIMINAL cases that do not have an investigation usually convicted cases. By having a private detective the defendant is able to collect evidence prior to the Preliminary Hearing at the court.  This is when the prosecutor and the defense attorney can each present their evidence.  They decides if probable cause exists to believe that the defendant committed the felony. The investigator can take statements from witnesses, the victim can give testimony if there is one involved, and usually, the initial appearance limited discovery.


Now if there was not enough evidence in behalf of the defense in order to have the case drop at the Initial Appearance or the Arraignment, they move to Discovery and Motion, this is the pretrial where the defendant and the prosecutor exchanges their information, evidence, pictures, investigative materials from the Law Enforcement and the Defense’s CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION.  This is a criminal procedure where both sides are able to see what the other side has as evidence. One thing that is not in the defense favor is that if a victim is involved in this crime, defendant has no constitutional right to talk to, or investigate to discover information from the victim.

An important thing to remember is that the prosecutor already has enough evidence to have you arrested and prosecuted as guilty; if you or your loved one, the defense does not have enough evidence or investigation to prove his innocence he will be convicted and a Motion to move with trial will proceed over the defense Motion to dismiss the indictment to suppress evidence or to introduce evidence.  This is why a private investigator, hired to seek the evidence needed to help you win your day in court or your trial in court.
