Our lead Idaho Falls criminal defense attorney is licensed in all state and federal courts in Idaho and can draw from more than 25 years of criminal law experience to defend you after a violent crime arrest.

Defense Strategies

As a former deputy prosecuting attorney, John E. Cutler is particularly familiar with the strategies that a prosecutor may try to use against you. We also know that the prosecution will have the burden of proving that you acted willfully with violence against someone else and that your intentional actions directly caused a victim immediate harm or bodily injury. Any element of doubt or any manner in which we can discredit the prosecutor's case can lead to your charges being reduced, or in some cases, your case being completely dismissed.

Common strategies include the following:

  • Mistaken identity
  • Violation of Miranda rights
  • Illegal search and seizure
  • Act of self-defense, defense of others, or defense of property
  • Motion to suppress evidence due to a violation of your constitutional rights
  • Insufficient evidence that you acted in violence against someone else intentionally

We have successfully handled violent crime charges in Idaho. No matter how daunting your case may seem, our firm is not afraid to make certain that your side of the story is heard in a court of law.
