Every accused has the right to be represented by an attorney in a criminal trial and if he or she cannot afford an attorney, the government will appoint an attorney at no cost to the defendant.
The attorney’s duties are to
- Advise the defendant of his rights and explain the criminal process
- Ensure the court proceedings follow the law and that the defendant’s constitutional rights are protected
- Negotiate for plea bargaining when appropriate
- Zealously r epresent the defendant at trial
