Innocent Until Proven Guilty
If you have been around long enough then you have likely heard the phrase “innocent until proven guilty” used in some form or fashion. In America, the idea that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty is one of the guiding principles of our justice system. Those of us who practice criminal law know clearly how important those four words are.
The idea that someone who is accused and on trial for committing a criminal act is not guilty until it can be proven that they are, creates a unique situation for a criminal defense lawyer. Instead of the accused having to prove that they did not commit a crime, the burden lies with the prosecution to prove that the accused did commit a crime. Furthermore, the prosecution has to prove that the accused committed the crime beyond a reasonable doubt.
For those who are standing trial for crimes, having a criminal defense lawyer who understands our criminal justice system inside and out is crucial. When you stand accused of a crime, you want a criminal defense lawyer who is going to go to work for you, forcing the prosecution to prove your guilt.
