If you have committed a crime but you don’t want to do the time, you are most definitely going to need to hire a criminal defense lawyer. Your main focus here would be to not admit your guilt to anyone at all, but in spite of the fact that this is the case we would recommend that you confess to your lawyer. It is important to note that your attorney is never going to tell anyone that you admitted your guilt. This would be a very serious breach of the confidentiality that the two of you share at the end of the day, so you can tell them that you are guilty in full confidence.
You might be wondering now why you would ever admit your guilt in the first place. Well, if you were to ask Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A. – Lawyers they would tell you that knowing whether or not you did the crime can help them represent you in court. It would allow them to make the most of the options they have at their disposal, and they would fight even harder to keep the prosecutors at bay.
If they think that you are innocent then they might let their guard down assuming that there wouldn’t really be all that much that the prosecutors can end up using, only to realize later on that you are in fact guilty and that there is some kind of evidence linking you to the crime. Lawyers that you hire are always going to be on your side even if they no longer work for you since anything you say to them is bound in the strictest form of confidence there is.
