Criminal Defense: A Search for the Truth
August 6, 2015
Hosted by Francie Koehler, CPI, CCDI
Have you ever wondered exactly what a criminal defense investigator does? Are you one of those people who question why people represent criminals? Are you one who wrinkles up your nose and asks, “How can you do that kind of work?” Even though much has changed in the American justice system, rights of even those who are accused of committing crimes are still protected by the United States Constitution. Daniel Dafoe said, “I hear much of people’s calling out to punish the guilty. But very few are concerned to clear the innocent.” There is no investigator better qualified to talk about criminal defense investigations than Brandon Perron, private investigator, criminal defense expert, author, and founder of both the Criminal Defense Investigations Training Council and the Board Certified Criminal Defense Investigator Program. Do not miss this discussion! You will not be sorry.
