Why a Former Prosecutor is Better Criminal Defense Attorney

June 11th, 2013 at 3:47 pm

Being in the criminal system can be a scary enough situation for anyone. Your future is dependent on what your attorney brings to the table. How it is received by the judge, jury and prosecutor can determine your future. It might seem that too many people have your life at their disposal. Ensuring you are properly represented is crucial, and having an attorney who clearly understands both the defense and the prosecution can aid your case immensely.

ChristineThe level of difference between a prosecutor and a defense attorney is evident in the way each does their job. A prosecutors job is to prove the defendant’s guilt; without proof, the defendant goes free. If evidence is available, the prosecutor will use whatever it takes to win the case. The research, the knowledge of emotional ties to a jury, and ability to appeal to a judge’s reasoning are all tactics a prosecutor uses to win a guilty verdict. On the other hand, a defense attorney has to just implant a seed of doubt to get a not guilty verdict. They do not have to prove anything. They can appeal to emotions as well, but it is to find doubt in the prosecutors story, rather than fact.

Finding the right attorney to defend you in your case is important. You want an Illinois criminal defense lawyer who understands how to fight for your rights, disprove the case against you, and impart doubt in the jury.
