Newport Beach Law Enforcement Defense Attorney | Police Officer Criminal Defense Lawyer

June 24, 2017

The Law Offices of John D. Rogers is committed to representing law enforcement officers accused of crime in Newport Beach and throughout southern California. Law enforcement personnel include probation officers, sheriff’s deputies, and police officers. It is important that anyone in the law enforcement field retain an attorney competent to handle their unfortunate situation to achieve the best possible outcome, an acquittal at trial or full dismissal.

We represent officers facing allegations of theft, filing a false police report, evidence planting, withholding exculpatory evidence, sexual misconduct, and excessive force. The prosecuting attorney ordinarily examines the facts and evidence in light most favorable to the officer when deciding to file formal charges. Moreover, without photographs or video evidence, the burden of proving that a police officer committed a crime is undoubtedly challenging.

Additionally, arrest suspects carry with them a substantial motive to exaggerate or fabricate the circumstances – a crucial factor when discrediting their testimony. Commonly, suspect’s typically file or intend to seek civil action against the individual officer and department. This allows defense counsel to expose their financial motivate and stake in the outcome of an officer’s criminal case.

In instances where the encounter was captured on video surveillance or on someone’s mobile device, often times the footage does not depict the entire encounter. Indeed, the critical pieces of evidence ordinarily occur prior to any filming. And more often than not, an officer can provide an explanation for the event – i.e., suspect was armed, public safety, officer safety, suspect was resistive, suspect was under the influence of an unknown substance, or the suspect is a known gang member or has a history of violent tendencies.
