When you are charged with a criminal offence, you aren’t given a manual or instruction book to assist you to defend yourself. The Crown Attorney who prosecutes your case will not generally advise you of your rights or about the weaknesses in their case. Without experience in court and at trial, it will be hard to tell whether you’ll win or lose your trial, or what the usual punishment might be if you’re found guilty of the offence with which you are charged. These are some of the reasons you should contact a lawyer for advice.
