How many lawyers know their client is guilty
but they also know the prosecution doesn’t have enough clear cut evidence to prove their case and get a conviction?

That’s where we may find ourselves with the 2020 mass voter fraud scheme....kudos to the Resistance.....I guess.

If the lawyer is smart and lays things out right to their client, very few of them.

They might suspect, but they don't KNOW.

Because you're not supposed to allow your client to lie in court proceedings and you're not supposed to lie/mislead the court.

Well, the hot shot lawyers that were representing the Pennsylvania SOS bailed on Friday, so there’s that.

In civil court it’s often a “sure but can you prove it” attitude.

re: How many lawyers know their client is guilty
The one time in my life I got hauled to jail, I was 17 and I was guilty AF.

My lawyer easily got me off on a technicality even though she knew I was guilty.

Long complicated story, but it was only public intox misdemeanor charge and it was the first and last time I ever went to jail. I learned that if the cops hadn't seriously breached protocol to bust me, I'd have gotten hammered with the charge.

It also taught me that sometimes certain cops will break the law to bust you.

re: How many lawyers know their client is guilty
If a lawyer knows their client is guilty of a major crime ( rape, murder etc) and then proceeds to use extraordinary measures to get their client off the hook and said client later commits another major crime, the lawyer should pay the price. Same goes for a prosecutor that uses extraordinary measures to knowingly put an innocent person away just for the sake of making a name for themselves. If the innocent party is later vindicated, that prosecutor should serve the remainder of the sentence.
When I say extraordinary measures, I’m talking about things like having solid evidence thrown out due to some bull shite technicality. I’m also talking about playing the race card just for the sake of playing it.

I’ve been told on Twitter and newsmax they have all of this and it’s coming soon? Should I be skeptical?

re: How many lawyers know their client is guilty
To me, a good criminal defense attorney that knows or suspects their client is guilty they should, 1) do all they can to protect their civil rights and 2) make the best deal possible. That's why there is such a disparity in sentencing. Those that must rely on public defenders get longer sentences than those that have good and paid for attorneys. I'm not a bleeding heart justice warrior, either.

So the extraordinary measures in terms of defense counsel, that's mainly the race card you say? Asking for a friend.

I went through the exact same scenario at the same age.

My friend (with a liberal mom) got off because the address on the charge was wrong.

I looked hopefully at my parents after that moment. The shook their heads and I paid the price.

Fortunately the judge informed us that my record would be expunged if I kept my nose clean, which I did. It was a defining moment in my life.

ETA: maybe not the exact same scenario. We were underage and we were intoxicated while wandering around in a park at 0200. We were guilty as charged.

Unfortunate truth. You see most "paid attorneys" come in and have 2, maybe 3 clients on the docket that day. A public defender.....15 - 20, maybe even more. It's not extremely pretty when that's all felony cases too.

Similar scenario.

I was drunk with a bunch of friends at a buddy's house.

I had already passed out inside the house in the guest room. My best friend went outside and started shite with the neighbor's son around 0100. Neighbor's boy knocked him smooth TF out and then called cops on us.

Cops showed up and most friends ran immediately. Cops cuffed my buddy on the ground in the front yard and then walked into the house, no warrant or knock, and handcuffed me in the bed then woke my arse up and dragged me outside.

They claimed I was being arrested because I was drunk and the neighbor told them I was one ofthe ones outside starting shite.

Fast forward to my hearing, and my attorney presented the neighbor's police report in which the neighbor said I had not been outside at all. Attorney also presented the officer's report in which they claimed they entered the residence "because no adults were present".

Attorney asked the officer if he knocked before entering. "No. We didn't need to because nobody over 18 was present." Judge asked cop, "So you discovered no adults were present after you entered without a knock or consent?" Cop had no answer.

Judge decided my night in jail was satisfactory punishment and let me off.
