There are a number of instances when a person will get in trouble with the law, and rightfully seek out a criminal defense attorney to help them deal with the criminal charges against them.
This can play out in the following ways;
- A Plea of Guilty
- A Plea of Not Guilty
- A Plea of No Contact
- An Acquittal
- Case Dismissal
- Accept Probation
Depending on who you hire for your criminal defense, it will have a big impact on the type of defense services you get in exchange for your legal fees. Some attorneys attempt to plea every case out, other lawyers try to fight every single case, even ones they know they can’t win.
Take the case in Houston involving the Mexican lady who killed the college professor with her shoe. With the dead man’s hair and blood dried up on the shoe heel, the defense attorney in her corner had a snowball’s chance in hell of winning that case.
I mean, she stabbed him over 50 times with a 6 inch stiletto shoe heel. Who has sympathy for a person with the energy to stab a person over 20 times? It takes a lot of energy to do a stabbing like that. Heck, she could have just walked away after hurting the man enough to get him away from her long enough for her to bail out.
