Possible Perjury Defenses
Perjury can actually be somewhat difficult for prosecutors to prove. It’s not enough just show that you gave false information in court, in a deposition, in a signed declaration, in a signed certificate, or in a DMV driver’s license application. The prosecutor must also prove that you gave false information on purpose. This means that there are a number of defense strategies that can be very productive in a perjury case. If we can prove any of the following, you will not be convicted of perjury:
- You believed your statement was true/you provided false information by mistake
- You misunderstood the question
- You were not technically under oath
- The false statement was not related to a “material fact” that could influence the outcome of the proceeding
