Many times, the police rush to attempt to solve these crimes and do not do a complete a very throrough investigation. Sometimes a case is overly charged by the prosecutor and this can result in an innocent person being convicted of assault and battery. Police may take statements from witnesses who are mistaken or lying, resulting in misidentification and false charges made against you. Police try to clear the case as quickly as possible and move on to the next investigation. Many times, they do not gather all of the evidence and witness statements, which would have led to no charges being filed by the prosecution, or less severe charges. Other times, police officers may use illegal tactics to gain evidence. Matthew Tuohy makes sure that illegal evidence is not considered by the court or jury.
