Sex Crimes Defense Attorney?
What Is The Average Salary For A Sex Crimes Defense Attorney? One Day I Hope To Be A Partner For A Large Firm.. I'M Currently Attending University For A Ba In Psychology W/ A Minor In Political Science. I Actually Want To Be A Neuropsychologist.. Specializing In Sex, Sexual Deviance And Sex Therapy.. But I Would Also Like To Be Able To Defend Those Accused Of Criminal Sexual Acts. I Guess I Want Two Professions! Any Advice For Me?
A criminal defense attorney who is good and brings in clients, if working for a large well known firm makes over $300,000 a year. Getting to that point can mean many years of work.
Charged sex offenders do not tend to hire private attorneys. Without bringing in paying clients your firm is not going to allow pro bono work, especially for sex cases which makes for poor PR.
To really work sex offender defense you have to become a public defender. They make about the same as prosecutors. In my county about the same a police detective.
Your Legal Aid Lawyer Wants You To Plead Guilty To Aggravated Assault When It Was Truly Self Defense?

You Have Never Done Anything Wrong Before This In Your Life-'Never Even Got A Traffic Ticket And Even Used To Work In Law Enforcement.
Would You Take The Risk And Go To Trial And Risk Getting Ten Years In Prison And Being Separated From Your Young Kids And Mentally Handicapped Child? Or Accept A Criminal Record And Risk Of Deportation With Your Kids And A Bleak Future? You Really Do Not Think You Are Guilty Of A Crime But The Other Person Was Badly Injured And Your Injuries Were Minor In Comparison. Please Do Not Judge Or Be Nasty-Just Advise Me What You Would Do If This Happened To You -Ty.
Sorry, but there is not really enough information here to make that call.
Lawyers advise their clients to take one action or another based on what the evidence may prove or not prove. If the lawyer believes that the state's case is strong, based on the number of witnesses, the credibility of the witnesses, the forensic evidence and other evidence, the lawyer may advise the client to plead guilty in order to receive a lighter sentence.
That sounds like what has happened here.
But the decision belongs to the client and if the client disagrees with the lawyer and believes that he/she can convince the jury of his/her innocence or self-defense claim, then the client may decide to go to trial. If the client does this, he/she should hire the best lawyer available that agrees with the decision to defend the case.
The only "evidence" you talk about in your question, is the fact that the other guy was hurt worse than the defendant. This will not look good to the judge or jury, as you are only allowed to use the force necessary to defend yourself, not more.
If the other evidence is also stacked up against the defendant, he/she should probably take the lawyer's advice.
What'S The Difference Between Murder And Wrongful Death?
What'S The Difference? A Crime Show Got Me Thinking, Could A Person Be Found Innocent Of Murder, But Guilty Of Wrongful Death Of Someone?
Murder is a criminal offence, wrongful death is a civil action. A person can be found innocent of murder and still be sued for wrongful death because the burden of proof is different. For murder the burden of proof is beyond a reasonable doubt, for wrongful death it is by a preponderance of the evidence. Also, wrongful death does not have to be intentional, and murder does.
Can The Father Give Up He'S Rights If The Mother Will Not Agree?
And Will He Still Have To Pay For Child Support?
You'll have to discuss the legal issues with your attorney. I do, however have strong opinions as to what is the right thing to do in this situation. Your child needs both parents. It's not the father's rights you would be giving away, but your child's right to know and spend time with father. Think about it carefully. And having spread your seed, it is your responsibility to financially care for your child, regardless of what the courts say. I believe, however that the courts will hold you to your financial responsibility.
A Question For Lawyers...?
Im Really Thinking About Becoming A Lawyer, So What Should I Know About Law School And Stuff?...Do Enjoy What You Do And Did U Ever Have To Sacrifice Anything To Become One?
First: Why a laywer? Is it to fullfill a true ambition or fulfill a "status" block (i.e., my child is a doctor/lawyer/dentist?). Do it ONLY for the former and rarely for the latter...status is good, but won't carry a career wrought with (1) alcoholism, (2) public scorn/scrutiny and (3) marital strife and (4) inevitable moral/ethical dilemmas and compromises.
Second: What type of law do you want to pratice? I love advocacy and found my niche in the courtroom. I have peers who have no business being in a courtroom as much as I have no business writing a will, securing real estate transactions or providing legal advice to a corporation. Match your desire to your skill set and passions.
Third: Embrace the culture of law. It's not what it appears on TV and in news headlines. The gloss you get on the 5 oclock news or on prime-time TV (even the "news" programs) is not even close to what goes on in the culture of law. Find a firm that you can intern with or do some paralegal/clerical work for. It will enlighten you both positively and negatively.
Fourth: if you do not like to read/write, law school and the following career may prove quite unfulfilling. Even as a litigator...90% of my career is reading/writing. A trial involves 90% reading/writing before you ever step into a courtroom. Your reading/writing skills have to be sharp. If you don't enjoy either...it's hard to "fake" the skills. I see plenty of mediocre attorneys (and former mediocre law students) and it is clear that they fake these skills. They end up hurting their clients and the profession in the long run. It erodes them professionally, emotionally and spiritually as well (hence alcoholism/divorce, etc).
Fifth: You asked of sacrifice. Yes there is sacrifice. To earn the "status" of being a laywer, you have to commit three long years to school - and it is a full-time commitment of your evenings and weekends. Has the sacrifice been worth it? Yes. I love being a litigator. I do criminal defense now and love the challenges it presents. I love defending my clients and giving them the constiutional protections they deserve. I love how the law has helped me in a lot of areas of my life. I better understand contracts i have to sign, how to buy a house/car, how to negotiate nearly everything. I better understand the news I read/watch, I better understand politics. Don't think all lawyers are miserable from what you are reading. I've been happily married to a loving non-lawyer for 8 years. My closest friends are lawyers and are happily married. None of us drink or have drinking problems. That's the majority of us. My lawyer friends with failed marriages and drinking problems would have those problems no matter what they did for a living. The law didn't creat those problems, but could have made existing problems worse because of the demands on lawyers by their bosses (and society).
Sixth: There are some great books about law school (everyone I think reads One-L by Turow, although its a bit unrealistic). A lot of college libraries have such books. Visit a law school and sit through the classes and talk to law students. I used to give tours at my law school and could tell who really wanted to be there and who was just trying to make mom/dad happy.
Last: Work between college and law school. Develop some "real world" experience. It will help you understand the law. You'll come in with better insight and more maturity. It will also help prevent burnout. I flew for the Air Force and also taught high school for between college and law school and was better for it. I barely graduated high school (2.02 GPA, no lie) and then graduated in the top 25% of my law school, who gave me a full-ride scholarship. It was the experience that helped me, and i was more mature and disciplined as well. Good luck to you

The law is the law, no matter where. That means, all of your constitutional rights and liberties are guaranteed in ANY court of law. There may be court procedural rules which define HOW you must apply those laws within the framework of that court. Your best advice should come from an attorney who knows the court rules and procedures.
You can refuse to admit anything you want. You are NOT required, under law, to self-incriminate yourself or to admit to anything. If other courts have found he manufactures things, just present the facts to the court and let the facts stand for themselves. How you go about doing this is dependent on court rules and procedures. It is unwise for you to not to have legal counseling or representation in these matters.
In this case, pleading the 5th has always been viewed as an escape mechanism for the guilty..mobsters in front of a Congressional inquiry often love to use it to prevent themselves from having to admit they have committed crimes. I am fairly certain, this is how it would be viewed in any court, even if it is your right. It is better to respond in the appropriate manner while avoiding admitting to anything. In other words, it might be smart money to be a good politician: give a reply and say nothing, that is what politicians do. Depending on the judge, you may be liable for not answering the questions directly and the judge may be compelled to find you guilty of contempt of court for not giving a direct answer to questions. This is why you need to have proper legal representation, who knows when you should speak and when you should shut up.
