Recently, a mother in Bellefontaine, Ohio was charged with the murder of
her three children. She is an innocent woman. She is protected by the
presumption of innocence. She is protected by the responsibility of the
state to prove her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt as to each and every
element of the crimes with which she has been charged.
No one can imagine the emotional pain and suffering that accompany losing
a child – much less three children. In the end, this mother may
be found guilty. She may have committed an unthinkable act and stolen
the lives of innocent children. But that does not mean that she is not
entitled to the best possible defense to ensure that the State properly
investigated the matter, respected her constitutional rights, and supplied
the proof necessary to convince a jury that she is guilty.
Convictions for these crimes often lead to the break-up of families, significant
time in jail or prison, loss of the right to carry a firearm, and even
the loss of your job and an inability to hold certain jobs. In these cases,
the best possible defense includes a team of lawyers, investigators and
paralegals who have the compassion and empathy to understand everything
from a client with serious mental illness to a parent scrambling to save
what is left of his or her life.
