Many people including defendants wonder why an attorney would choose to represent people charged with committing crimes, particularly when the charges are serious and the prosecution has a lot of evidence. Experienced criminal defense lawyers understand that their duty is to provide their client with an effective defense and force the prosecution to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. This is the only way that we can ensure our justice system functions properly, by making sure that the government and law enforcement, who usually have more resources at their disposition, do not abuse their authority and that individuals are not imprisoned without enough or proper evidence.
Accusations and Reasonable Doubt
Whenever a person is arrested or criminal charges are filed against someone, this is based upon accusations. Our system of justice does not let a person get convicted just because they were accused of a crime. The prosecution must prove that the person committed the crime with evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. This based on the premise that a society is more just if 100 guilty persons go free, than one innocent suffer a criminal sentence, as it was best said by Benjamin Franklin.
Representation in the Face of Guilt
Criminal defense attorneys have a professional ethical obligation to defend their client, even when the person is guilty. An experienced criminal lawyer will know how to manage a case to get the best result for the defendant even when that person is guilty. In most cases when a person is guilty, the important part of the case is the sentencing. If the appropriate punishment is issued and everything is done to help the defendant reform their behavior and reduce the chance of later offenses, this is a victory even for a defendant who is found guilty.
