How Our Texas Criminal Defense Attorneys Can Help You
With today’s technology, counterfeiting schemes have become increasingly advanced and complex. In some ways, prosecutors struggle to understand the latest technological developments in counterfeiting. In some cases, this lack of understanding can result in Texas or federal prosecutors bringing counterfeiting charges that are not actually supported by the evidence.
For you to be convicted of counterfeiting, the prosecution must prove that you knowingly committed the act of counterfeiting money. If the prosecution cannot meet this high legal burden, the charges against you should be dropped. Our aggressive Houston criminal defense attorneys will review your case and fight against any charges in which the prosecutors cannot prove that you had the requisite intent to traffic, possess or use counterfeit money.
Beyond directly fighting counterfeiting charges, our team will also look opportunities to reduce your penalties. In some cases, the prosecutors may have sufficient evidence to prove the case. If that is so in your case, we will do everything in our power to properly represent your interests, in order to get you the best possible result. We know how to negotiate with prosecutors and work your case through the criminal justice system.
