Defending people against accusatins is a key element of our criminal justice system.  Since formation of our country the right to present a defense, based in constitutional rights and guarantees has helped citizens defend themselves against government tyranny.  The right to remain silent has, in large part, replaced the forced confessions, true and false, of those accused by the same government who is extracting the confessions.  It was so crucial to a civilized government-citizen relationship that it was codified in the origianal bill of rights at the founding of our nation.  This occured in large part to torutured confessions, not much different than took place during the Salem witch trials. Now, following an arrest, but prior to a custodial interrogation, the government must inform you of this right.  With such safeguards we, in part, avoid the attrocities that led to their necessity.  It is a safeguard, for everyone, agaisnt the same government.

The right to present a defense, testify as part of your defense, or remain silient is also important.  Our criminal justic system is in large part based upon the English Common Law, with notable deviations.  One area that has changed is that in the English system, there was a time when the accussed was not even allowed to speak in his own defense.  This is because they had the highest motivation to lie to the trial court.  Their neck was on the line, litterally.  Today, we have an absolute right to speak in our own defense.  It is an evoloution of justice, and we cannot be so arrogant as to believe our system to be perfect, free of the need for change, and fair to all.  

To defend yourself against accusations that can change your life, you should consult with a quality, educated, professional defense attorney help you defend against the government accusations.
