Raising Questions about a Defendant’s Guilt

Posted by Blackie Burak | Mar 26, 2019 | 0 Comments

If you face charges in an impaired-driving case that goes to trial, our Walnut Creek DUI law firm can prepare you for some of the arguments made by opposing counsel. Hearing the prosecution criticize you in court can be intimidating, but we know how to defend you during a trial.

The Prosecution's Method

One of the messages that the prosecution will communicate is the need to “send a message” to the defendant about their actions in order to protect the community from the risks of drunk driving. The opposing counsel emphasizes the threat of DUI offenses and usually labels defendants as dangerous. They emphasize taking responsibility for choices through court sanctions including possible prison time.

Your Attorney's Role

At the same time, your Walnut Creek DUI lawyer will use this time to aggressively defend clients. Although every DUI case is different, a seasoned defense lawyer will drive home strong points during the closing arguments. One of these points is the presumption of innocence for anyone accused of a crime. The other main point is the prosecution's burden to prove a person's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Our Walnut Creek DUI law firm will raise serious questions about the guilt of clients in court. The prosecution cannot always meet the second criteria, and in these cases, the jury will need to rule in favor of the defendant by returning a ‘not guilty' verdict.
