How can you represent a criminal defendant when you know he’s guilty?

Sometimes people ask me how can you defend someone when you know he’s guilty?  That’s cerrtainly a fair question.  Our Founding Fathers believed that everyone was entitled to an attorney to defend him or her against criminal charges.  They provided that we were entitled to a speedy and public trial.   We have the right to demand a trial by a jury of our fellow citizens.

I believe our prosecuting attorneys do a good job enforcing the law and bringing the guilty to justice.  However, they are human and they do make mistakes.   In recent years DNA has proved that many people have been falsely convicted of crimes.  Often this has resulted because of a rush to justice, or because someone did not have a good lawyer to defend them.

If you have been charged with a crime in Arkansas, whether felony or misdemeanor, state or federal court, I would be glad to visit with you.  Please call me at 501-604-4525 or e-mail me at srd@stevenrdavislaw.com
