When the State accuses you of a crime, you need to protect your legal rights. Scott F. Hess, an Augusta, Maine criminal defense lawyer will assist with all levels of criminal cases.

Police do not call for friendly chats. They call to trick people into giving them information that will associate an individual or individuals to a crime scene. Regardless of how nice they may appear on the phone, or what they tell you about it being a minor issue, do not say anything to them and seek legal guidance at once.

You have the right to remain silent.

When the State accuses you of a crime, you need to protect your legal rights. Was the stop of your vehicle legal? Did the officer read you your Miranda rights? Will I lose my driver’s license? These are some of the many issues that can arise in a criminal case. We can help to ensure that your rights are protected through aggressive, yet practical advocacy.

Good people sometimes do bad things, and sometimes good people don’t even do anything bad and get accused of it anyway. We are here to help.

Remember: without evidence there is no case. The sooner a lawyer is brought in to help, the better the chances someone has of living a jail or prison-free life.

The criminal justice system has become increasingly short on justice, and we want to help change that. Good people sometimes do bad things, and sometimes good people don’t even do anything bad and get accused of it anyway. We’ve been doing this a long time and understand that the Maine criminal justice system needs a little work.
