No! I hear this all the time from my clients, shouldn’t I just plea guilty if I did the crime? Again, no! There is a time to admit responsibility and that is after you have hired an attorney and exhausted all your legal options and rights. The time to plea guilty in your case is after a thorough and exhaustive examination of all of the evidence against you. The time to plea guilty in your case is when your attorney has examined all the case law relevant to your case. The time to plea guilty is when your attorney has looked over all the statutory law regarding your case. Your attorney will know which evidence can be suppressed via the Fourth Amendment. I can figure out which statements can be properly limited or excluded. I can figure out which evidence will be available to the prosecutor and which evidence may not be available to the prosecutor. After I have figured out what evidence will actually be admitted against my client, I can figure out whether there is enough evidence to support a conviction. After I have followed the above-mentioned steps as your lawyer, I can then tell you if we should consider entering a plea or we should consider trying the case at trial. However, I can’t figure out which way your case will go until I gather all the information and undergo a complete examination of all the evidence gathered from my legal research.
Shouldn’t I Just Plea Guilty If I Did The Crime? One last time, NO!
