    Lawyers agree

    Answered . To be guilty of a crime in Kansas you must have known what was going on and participated in some way. Now whether the police and prosecutor believe you did not know or participate I cannnot say. Have you been charged? If so stop talking to the police and find a good criminal defense attorney immediately.

    Answered . There is no confidentiality online. Volunteering to answer this question does not create an attorney-client relationship. The accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The likelihood of a positive outcome- exoneration or a mitigated sentence- is increased with the help of an experienced criminal litigator. Seek out an experienced criminal litigator for a free consultation. If you cannot find one on Avvo, search at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL.org) Speak to several attorneys and hire the one that makes you feel confident and comfortable.
