For instance, if a person arrested for driving while intoxicated asks to speak to an attorney before taking the breath test and that opportunity isn’t given, the refusal can be ruled reasonable and the license suspension will not be imposed.
The purpose of a trial is for the prosecutor to prove whether a person is guilty of the crime they’re charged with.
If proof isn’t demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt, the defendant isn’t guilty and cannot be tried again for the same crime.
The defendant doesn’t have to prove anything, so it isn’t a hearing to be scared of.
It can strategically be used in a variety of ways.
If for any reason, the prosecutor cannot prove their case, obtain their witnesses, produce their evidence, or form a satisfactory foundation for the introduction of their evidence, it cannot be introduced or otherwise suppressed.
It’s important for the defense attorney to be creative and not scared of the process. We must embrace it and take advantage of it.
The trial begins with jury selection followed by opening statements.
The prosecutor will then present their witnesses.
Then, the defense lawyer will have the opportunity to question or cross examine each of them.
It’s the trial court’s responsibility to make sure everything is fair.
