San Jose criminal defense attorneyIt is normal to feel a little bit nervous before your appearance in court because of criminal charges. It is important to properly prepare yourself for trial because judges will not take kindly to a defendant who is not acting properly or who comes unprepared. Preparing for a criminal trial is not difficult, but it does require some prior planning. Here are a few ways you can get ready for your criminal trial:

1. Prepare Your Evidence

One of the most crucial pieces of your defense is the evidence that you bring to the trial that supports your claim of innocence. Evidence can be in two forms: witness testimony and exhibits. Witnesses can be people who keep records relevant to the case, experts who are qualified to give an opinion about a certain part of the case or any other person who has relevant information about the case.

He faces charges of grand theft, perjury, and violations of the Political Reform Act.

The Washington Post reports that the 79-year-old entertainer is facing three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home back in 2004.

As each of Cosby’s three counts of aggravated indecent assault carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years under Pennsylvania law, the comedian could face substantial jail time if convicted. But what exactly is Cosby accused of? Because states in the U.S. use different terminology for equivalent criminal acts, some of us in California may be confused by the term “aggravated indecent assault” as our criminal code does not contain such an offense. Therefore, this article explains the crime that Cosby is accused of under Pennsylvania law and outlines some corresponding laws that we have in California.
