Why do you defend people that are guilty?

“Why do you defend people that are guilty?”  I am often asked this question; even by very well educated, and well intentioned individuals.   I explain to them that I defend the accused.  Do you see the difference?  The Constitution demands that individuals are presumed innocent until proved guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Thanks to the Innocence Project we know that individuals have been convicted that were in fact innocent.
