Guilty of a Criminal Case? Lawyers Can Still Defend You

Posted by Pisanilaw on April 17th, 2018

A good lawyer never give up, until he wants to, or until he gets what he wants.

Defense attorneys are bound to represent all clients, the guilty ones as well as the innocent ones. In fact, they almost never really even know whether the defendant is guilty of the crime he or she has been charged with. Many defense lawyers don’t even ask their clients if they committed the crime. Instead, they use the facts to put on the best defense possible and leave the question of guilt to the court.

If you have been guilty of a criminal offense, a criminal defense attorney can still defend you. Generally, they aren’t concerned whether you actually committed the crime that you’re accused of or not. The clients in trial that they represent are legally innocent until the prosecutor proves them guilty in a jury trial or with a guilty plea. So, even if you are factually innocent (i.e you didn’t commit the crime that you’re accused of) or factually guilty (i.e you actually committed the crime that you’re accused of), it doesn’t affect your defenses.

Some differences between legal guilt and factual guilt:

When a person gets convicted in a court of law, he is legally guilty, irrespective of the fact whether he has actually committed the crime or not. The person might actually be factually innocent, but he will still remain legally guilty in such a case. Until he can prove otherwise.
When a person has actually committed a crime but has not yet been charged of caught or convicted or has been presumed innocent, he is said to be factually guilty. In such a case, he might never get convicted of the crime that he has actually committed.
There are so many instances where factually guilty people roam free and never get convicted or get their charges dropped.

Have you already pleaded guilty for the offense that you’ve been accused of? Wondering what is going to happen next?

In such a case where you confess that you have actually committed the crime that you’re accused of, your criminal defense attorney can help you drop your charges or at least reduce them by persuading the prosecution to reduce the number of charges against you or by getting the charges reduced to a minimum possible
