If I am innocent, why do I need a lawyer?

Innocent people do get accused of committing crimes every day. Also, people who may have committed one crime often get accused (sometimes wrongfully) of committing additional, and more serious crimes. As the accused, you have a constitutional right to counsel. You are always better off having a lawyer learn about the accusation, discuss it with you, and develop a strategy for responding to the charge. 

Even if you wholeheartedly believe you are innocent, NEVER EVER NEVER talk to the police, investigator, prosecutor until you have legal counsel...Don't take my word for it, listen to the thousands of people wrongfully convicted and sitting in jail.
