Defending Clients Charged With Crimes
Being a criminal defense lawyer, I am often asked the following questions regarding those who I represent.
- How can you defend somebody who has been charged with such serious crimes?
- How could you represent someone who is obviously guilty?
should i do
I also get this question from my colleagues who knew that I was a prosecuting attorney for 14 years.
- How could I go over to the dark side?
My response is that it’s not the dark side, but the side that defends justice each day. In Stalinist Russia, nobody referred to it is a defense lawyer state. It was called a police state. However, we live in the United States where we have rights. No other profession is guaranteed in the Constitution and its Bill of Rights but the defense lawyer. The defense lawyer is guaranteed to every person when they have been charged with a crime. Liberty in American demands it.
History is filled with people who have been wrongly accused, arrested and convicted. The only protection those people have is the right to be defended. It is not the job of the police and the prosecution to protect the innocent. It is their job to arrest and prosecute people.
The Right To A Criminal Defense Lawyer
When people make the assumption that my client is “obviously guilty,” my response is, “how do they know that my client is guilty when they don’t know my client and they don’t know any of the evidence. It is the defense lawyer that seeks the truth on behalf of that person. Oppressive regimes have prosecutorial justice systems but we live in a country where every citizen has the right to a criminal defense attorney.
