Simplified Steps to Defense


by Rudy Taylor

First, we must attempt to get the accused citizen out of jail with a bondsman. It is sometimes necessary to file a Writ of Habeas Corpus to reduce the bond if it is set too high for the class of crime charged.

Second, it is my sole responsibility to analyze the accused citizen's case to make sure that his/her constitutional rights have not been violated by the government authorities. If the U.S Constitution, the Texas Constitution, the Texas Statutes, and/or case law are violated, a motion to suppress evidence and statements, inter alia, may be filed. 

Third, the citizen and I must go over the facts of the case in detail to ascertain the validity of the charges and theorize any possible defenses. Jury trials are most successful when telling the jury a true story. So it is important for the citizen to trust defense counsel with minute details of the events surrounding the alleged crime...except for the ultimate question... did he do it? Defense counsel does not want to know. We let the facts speak for themselves.

Forth, it is important that we discuss the possibility of settling the case with a plea bargain or going all the way to jury trial. The facts of the case and the circumstances of plea negotiations determine the timing of the plea. It is not uncommon to settle the case only minutes before actually picking the jury.

Next, the trial. I am a student of Robert Hirschorn, JD, PhD. in the art of picking juries which includes educating the jury on the issues in the case. This is arguably the most important part of trial. 

Then, I simply tell our story through opening statements and cross-examination of the State's witnesses and possibly our own witnesses including the accused citizen. Hopefully, all of the preparation and final presentation at trial will result in a judicious outcome with which the citizen will be happy.
