Every case is unique and to use the common analogy, “every case is like a snowflake.”  Often we don’t know the answer until we do our due diligence and investigate the facts of the case and speak with potential witnesses.  In addition to independent investigation, we file a motion for discovery in every case.  This forces the state and the police to turn over all of the documents they possess and intend to use at trial.  In a sense, if we were playing poker, we get to see the state’s cards before we decide to play our hand.

Some of the common factors to consider in answering the question, Am I going to Jail are:
