Cases Our Criminal Defense Attorneys Handle in Minnesota

The skilled attorneys at Knutson + Casey have three decades of experience defending their clients against many types of criminal charges. We have a proven track record of success and a wealth of knowledge and skills we are ready to apply to your unique situation. A few different types of cases our criminal defense attorneys are adept at handling include the following:

  • Violent crimes
  • Theft
  • Homicide
  • Weapons charges
  • Kidnapping
  • Domestic violence

After being arrested, it is critical to assert your right to remain silent until you have a skilled attorney by your side. While many individuals accused of crimes assume explaining themselves to the police may help them mitigate their charges or penalties, anything you tell an officer may be used against you during the legal process. Even if you believe you are sharing harmless details, they may be used to challenge your alibi or place you at the scene of the crime. The skilled Blue Earth criminal defense lawyers at Knutson + Casey can help you protect yourself from self-incrimination and advise you on the best course of action moving forward. 

Possible Penalties for Criminal Charges in Minnesota

Depending on the severity of your charges, the penalties for a conviction may significantly impact your life. Some common penalties convicted individuals face in Minnesota include the following:

  • Thousands of dollars in fines
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Days to a lifetime of incarceration
  • Probation
  • Mandatory education and rehabilitation programs
  • Community service 

Fortunately, being charged with a crime does not automatically result in a conviction. The prosecutor must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. A skilled criminal defense attorney can cast doubt on the prosecutor’s case by questioning witnesses, drawing attention to police errors, and presenting evidence to establish your innocence. When you choose us, you can trust your attorney to do everything in their power to fight for a favorable outcome for your case.
