and why you need one
Though defendants have a constitutional right to defend themselves in court, it’s an uncertain endeavor. If you intend to represent yourself, you may risk your freedom or subject yourself to a longer sentence. For instance, you may think the police are wrong or made a mistake, and if you simply tell the truth in court, you’ll be exonerated. Or perhaps you think the police have no evidence against you, so, you’ll win your case by default.
It rarely works that way, nor is it so easy.
In some cases when a defendant knows they’re guilty, but they think they understand the law well enough to defend themselves, they may end up in a trial where they don’t know the rules of court procedure and laws, presentation of evidence, witness interrogation or the many other complexities of criminal defense conduct. When a defendant represents himself in a criminal proceeding and doesn’t know court demeanor and what’s allowed, they may irritate the judge, which could contribute to a poor case outcome. Even worse than annoying a judge, because you may not know the complexities of the law, besides being found guilty, your sentence could be even more severe.
When You’ve Been Charged with A Crime, You Need a Qualified Shreveport Criminal Defense Attorney–Your Freedom May Depend on It
