Your attorney may coach you before your trial

Many residents of South Carolina will find themselves in a court of law at some point in their lives. Some will be serving on the jury, while others could be faced with charges. If you fall into the latter category, the first step is to think about your defense. A criminal conviction of any kind is a serious matter and can dramatically affect your future prospects.

Fortunately, by law, you are not considered guilty unless all reasonable doubt is removed. As such, as long as you can preserve that doubt, you might be able to avoid conviction. Of course, this is not the best strategy for everyone, so if it seems certain that you will be found guilty, you may benefit instead from negotiating a plea deal. Sometimes by admitting to a charge, you can acquire reduced penalties.

Saying the right thing at the right time can make all the difference to your trial and, as this article on criminal defense explains, many defendants receive advice and coaching from their attorneys beforehand. This is because being in a courtroom and being questioned can be extremely nerve-wracking. Regardless of your innocence, you could find yourself lost for words. Coaching is intended to help you fix the facts in your mind so you know what you want to say even before you are asked.

There are many reasons an attorney may be beneficial if you are faced with criminal charges. A good defense is vital if you hope to avoid conviction. Equally, if you intend to negotiate a plea deal, your attorney may be able to advise you on the best way to go about doing so. With this support, you can work toward the best possible outcome to your trial.
