NOT GUILTY are the two words not said often enough by defense attorneys and judges.  While virtually every criminal and DUI defendant pleads not guilty at the initial arraignment, over 90% of defendants resolve their cases with GUILTY pleas.  Not everyone charged is guilty, therefore there are numerous reasons to maintain your Not Guilty plea and proceed to trial. If you are looking for an attorney, consider the time they have been practicing criminal defense law and how often they take cases to trial.  I do feel that it is the defense attorney's duty to explore plea deals, however they also have duty to inform the client of any and all potential defenses to the charges.  Of course if the client maintains innocence then the plea should rarely be guilty to charges.  There are other times when the client is actually guilty that a not guilty result is possible and sometimes even likely. The Commonwealth or State has the burden to prove the Defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  There are many circumstances wherein even though they know of the defendant's guilt, they cannot prove that guilty.  Often prosecutors will use a plea to prove the case.  Similarly, if the investigator cannot prove the case, the best and most often method is to interrogate the defendant and elicit a confession. If you have been charged with a crime, contact an attorney.  If you have questions about your guilt and want to explore a trial, talk to your attorney.  If you have not yet retained a lawyer, call Michael Bouldin at 859-581-6453, or email at [email protected]
