San Diego Co-Defendant Criminal Case
The problem in a San Diego Co-Defendant Criminal Case arrises when criminal co-defendants are being represented by the same lawyer and one co-defendant may face likelihood of having to suffer a more severe sentence than they deserve. Co-defendants using the same attorney will place a attorney in a position where they may not be able to assist both parties in their best interest because one defendant may be more guilty than the other. If one co-defendant has committed a majority of the offense, the lessor offender may have to suffer the same consequences as a result of the jury, judge, and attorney having an issue distinguishing whom has committed a majority of the offense and they may be tried together.
It is typical for the jury and even the judge to evaluate the situation and consider the co-defendant’s to be considered one. If the co-defendant in your case has committed more of the offense than you, don’t do yourself an injustice and put yourself in a position where you have to suffer the same sentence because your attorney has to fight harder for the other co-defendant. Do not do yourself an injustice, get your own attorney here in San Diego that can help you fight your in your best interest.
Further, if a co-defendant confesses they may incriminate the lessor offender and the lessor offender will have to suffer additional charges. There will be issues with the jury being confused on whom has done what. The attorney may be put in a position where they could not adequately represent the lessor offender because they are trying to protect both parties. There are a number of issues that may arise and are not worth the consequence that can be easily avoided by having your own attorney in a San Diego Co-Defendant Criminal Case.
