Legal-Ease: Representing clients accused of bad things

People have a constitutional right to an attorney, and if they can’t afford an attorney, the government will pay for a lawyer for them. Everyone has a right to be defended, and this helps us know that we are only punishing people whom we know to be guilty. Some are criticizing Hillary Clinton for defending a man in 1975 who was accused of raping a 12-year-old girl, but he was provided the right to an attorney as part of the constitution. This guaranteed right to an attorney is an important piece of our society that allows it to function.
