A: From a strategic standpoint, it always makes more sense to plead not guilty to any charge, at least until you and your lawyer have had a chance to review everything, see if there is not enough evidence against you, or see if there is a way in which the case could end up being dismissed or the evidence thrown out. I would highly recommend that you reach out to an experienced criminal defense lawyer to see how he or she can help you out.
