Busted! Don’t Believe These Legal Myths!
Many people have increasingly grown fascinated about criminal laws and the justice system by watching movies or TV shows. Furthermore, these shows have changed the average American’s thinking about obtaining and understanding legal services. However, the media coverage often taints the reality of the criminal justice system and does not always provide accurate information. Believing these false facts associated with legal service could have an adverse impact on your case and how your legal future pans out. This is where you should actually speak with a practitioner to determine a more accurate account.
To help you steer clear of these misconceptions, Law Office of M Byron Morgan has debunked three of the most widely believed legal myths.
Myth 1: All cops tell the truth
Some law enforcement officers do lie, and the tendency to lie mostly pervades all police work. As a criminal defense lawyer, I have been involved in well over a hundred jury trials and have come across police officers giving out false testimony.
Myth 2: You can represent yourself well
NOT TRUE! While you have a constitutional right to represent yourself, you will have a fool for a client if you do. It is impossible to be objective about evidence when your liberty or property is at stake.
Myth 3: Everyone should testify
Once again, while you have the constitutional right to do so, it may not be in your best interests to do so. Only decide to do this after careful consultation with your lawyer.
