The people responding don’t appear to understand our legal system. The constitution says that someone accused of a crime has a right to legal counsel. The prosecutor tries to prove the person’s guilt, and the defense attorney’s responsibility is to vigorously clear the person of charges. Then the judge and jury (if there is one) weights the evidence and passes judgement. The defense attorney is not the judge and jury. It’s how our system is set up, and it works pretty well.
