They must also defend a client who they may personally believe to be guilty of the crime in which they are charged to the best of their ability. Again, personal beliefs and opinions must be put aside and a client that has been charged with committing unspeakable acts must be defended. Therefore, it takes not only work but real character to become a criminal defence attorney to defend the rights of each and every individual granted under the law. Just like any other individual who seeks to obtain a law degree, criminal defence attorneys attend law school. You may want to check out Hempstead DWI Lawyer for more.
In order to practise law, they must also pass the bar examination. I mention these rights because they are what is really being defended by a defence attorney. The other party usually falls into one of two categories in my numerous discussions with those who have a problem with Criminal Defense: 1. 1. They believe that too many rights are granted in our system, and there should be less protection for criminal defendants or 2. Unless the criminal defendant is ‘obviously guilty,’ they feel the rights are appropriate and should be maintained. As for the first category, these individuals usually hold this perception because they believe they would never face criminal prosecution, so they would never be subject to the restriction of these rights. Too many times, however, innocent individuals are suspected of crimes and without these rights in place, without these protections in place, they could face prosecution and ultimately conviction. A simple matter of ‘wrong place, wrong time’ can lead to accusations of crime against an innocent individual. And as cautious and legitimate as one can attempt to live their lives, there is always the possibility of an identification of error or chance encounter that can turn the life of a person upside down. For instance, if an officer had the right to stop you on the highway solely because you look suspicious, search your car because he/she feels like it, and arrest you without first having established a probable cause, would you really feel comfortable?
