Every criminal case is very different in its own way. And, of course, depending on the circumstances that are surrounding it, the legal representative is going to need to come up with a solid as well as genuinely lucrative legal defense strategy that will not let you down. Surely, though, it all depends on a variety of factors and the attorney will need to learn as many details about the case as it is possible, so do not hesitate to share everything you know in order to get the best results. For example, the prosecution may well present the case by placing you to a certain scene. And yet, the lawyer, who has other information as well as different witnesses, is going to place you to an entirely different position, so this will prove to be the viable defense strategy that will be effective in your case.
With that said, it is also important for you to understand that you need to share the truth with the legal representative. Sitting there and coming up with new stories that would show you in a better light is not lucrative, since this will only hinder the defense tactics and will mess with the perspective of the case in general. However, at times, the same case can be viewed in different light – that much is certain. For instance, whereas the prosecution sees you as a cold-hearted murderer, who killed the victim in cold blood, the lawyer and you as the defendant will present the case with facts pointing out that you killed the victim in self-defense and it was therefore pretty much unavoidable. This is the best chance that you will have in such a case to make the most from the defense and this is why it is so genuinely crucial to make sure that you are presenting all the info to the lawyer to begin with. That way the overall charges against you can be lessened or you may get a much better and more lucrative plea bargain.
Of course, both the prosecutor and the legal representative will be telling a story that would put you in different light. And while they are both basing the story on actual facts, their stories may well be nothing alike. After all, you know those geographical maps that are very much different, while being truthful in their own manner – some are showing the geographic borders, while others are based on income of the population or certain aging dynamics. Well, both of the maps are true and yet they look nothing like one another and this is also the case with the criminal defense strategy. And such a truthful story should be consistent with a few key factors that will play a genuinely major role in the outcome of the case in general. First of all, the story will need to be truthful and correspond with all the evidence. This means that is the story says that the defendant was using a getaway car that was stolen earlier, it has to be proven that the very same car actually was stolen at a gunpoint before the crime has occurred. Furthermore, the attorney will need to do his or her best in order get as much sympathy from both the judge and the jury towards the defendant. For instance, they will need to know that the defendant was not inclined to commit the crime and even if he did commit it, he went as far as reporting the crime to the law enforcement authorities as soon as possible. The legal representative will then have to explain why the story of the defendant is the true story – for instance, if the defendant is claiming that he or she was not present at the crime scene at the time that the crime occurred, it is important for the lawyer to present solid evidence on why the defendant was not present there in line with all of the available evidence that is already in the case.
In most of the case, every defendant’s story is generally falling under one of the three large categories. The first one being the confession story. This is basically when the defendant is coming to the legal representative and is telling him or her that it is true and the defendant did steal the money from the wallet or took the wallet from the victim. The second type of stories is complete denial – this is when the defendant is denying any and all charges that the prosecution has against him. This is most common when the defendant has a solid alibi – after all, during the time that the crime was committed, he was in a bar with plenty of friends, who are going to say the same thing about his whereabouts, so why is he charged with the crime to begin with? Finally, there is the admit and explain type of story. For instance, the house window was not broken by the defendant – he used the key of his friend to get into the house and to get all the valuables from it in order to store them in a safe place. And the window was probably broken later on.
Finally, when the defendant is going to share his or her story with the legal representative, they are going to work together in order to come up with the ideal criminal defense strategy that will prove to be genuinely lucrative as well as reliable indeed. And, of course, the strategy will need to be based around the witnesses, who are ready to stand for the defendant, around the impeccable reputation of the defendant, his or her merits as well as just about everything good that he or she has ever done before the crime ever occurred.
