Criminal Defense

Criminal law is, largely, defined by a set of specific statutes found in the Rhode Island General Laws.  Titles 11 and 12, entitled Criminal Offenses and Criminal Procedure, provide the statutory framework for the practice of Criminal Law.  Titles 13 and 14, entitled Criminals-Correctional Institutions and Delinquent and Dependent Children, are also applicable.  A thorough understanding of these statutes (laws), and the manner in which they’ve been interpreted by the Rhode Island Supreme Court, is critical to the effective practice of criminal law.
