Oklahoma DUI Survival Guide

Oklahoma DUI Survival Guide

Often remarks are made indicating that ‘drunk drivers’ should just be locked up and that it takes a slimy lawyer to try to get them off.  That reaction is understandable from a purely emotional standpoint, but let’s dig a little deeper.  The reason we have courts is to determine if the laws are being followed and to administer justice.  It is the foundation of our nation.  The police officer has a job – he arrests people who are suspected of committing crimes.  At that point, the District Attorney (DA) assumes responsibility.  The DA’s job is to determine if charges should be filed and to prosecute the case.  If we stopped there we would have a form of kangaroo court – but we do not.

The person accused is entitled by law to have his day in court.  The Defense Attorney is responsible for providing balance by fighting the overwhelming power of the government.  There will be a judge who is supposed to be neutral – a referee in effect.  Then, we have a jury composed of his ‘peers’.  That is, the jury should represent people in the community who are similar to the accused person.

With these players in place, each has a job to do.  The Prosecutor wants to convict and the Defense Attorney must protect his client.  The Defense Attorney demands that all laws and all procedures are followed.  The evidence will be tested.  Our Founding Fathers felt it was extremely important that innocent people not be convicted and this concern lead to the formation of our current judicial system.

Without the objection of the Defense Attorney, illegal evidence could be introduced.  Without the Defense Attorney, illegal interrogation by the police would be rampant.  Without the Defense Attorney, police could arrest on just a hunch.  Without the Defense Attorney, illegal home searches could take place — you get the idea.  The Defense Attorney, by doing his job, is defending the rights of EVERY citizen in the United States.  He is standing for justice and you cannot have justice only for a certain group of people.  Just as our laws are meant to apply equally to all people — justice is meant to apply equally to all people.
