Criminal cases are not all black and white. They can be complex and complicated too. Those who have been charged sometimes believe that it is a simple process of showing up and discoursing their side of the story. That they will be believed in court because they think they are telling the truth. No, the reality is extremely different. It is complex and a process that has deadlines, procedures and strict guidelines. Defences must be declared way in advance, evidence cannot be introduced if deadlines are missed. Witnesses should always be revealed early on if their testimony is required. There are a lot of loops and hoops making attorneys a must in the process. Besides, it isn’t always about jail time either but the conviction can be various other penalties such as.
- Mandatory Alcohol or Drug counselling
- DL suspension
- Community Service
- Registration and restriction requirements
