Attempts to Commit a Crime

Jacksonville Defense of Criminal Attempts

Attempt occurs when a crime is attempted, but not completed. These charges are treated very seriously and are often used by the State Attorney to charge individuals when a basis for other offenses is lacking. Just as in the case of "aiding and abetting" or "principals," these charges are often placed on an individual to provide leverage for the State Attorney in their case against other co-defendants. The charges are often dropped, or negotiated down to lesser offenses when the defendant agrees to testify or help the State with a case against another person. This is an extremely tricky game to play and one that should not be engaged in without the advice and help of an extremely experienced criminal defense attorney. Of course, there are times that no assistance is or should be given to law enforcement if the State cannot otherwise prove its case.
