I THINK A MAN IS NOT A CRIMINAL, HIS ACTS ,ACTIONS AND HIS DEEDS ARE CRIMINAL HIS THOUGHT MAY BE CRIMINAL, WHEN THE DEATH PENALTY IS ANNOUNCED , IT IS GIVEN TO THE PERSON, NOT TO HIS ACTIONS AND DEEDS. THE PERSON SHOULD BE GIVEN FULL OPPORTUNITY OF BEING HEARD AND SHOULD BE PROVIDED LEGAL AID TO PRESENT HIS CASE BEFORE THE JUDGES. A LAWYER NEVER SPEAK LIE, HE SPEAKS WHAT HIS CLIENT TELL HIM.
here in accused there is the job of countering only on the prosecution defects that if high lighted court will not punish the accused but let free - acquitted.
true, that way when i redied to defend Ajmal Kasab many bar members told me i will defend a bad criminal but i said i have to see what way and where the prosecution fails that is all my duty - why shiva sainik kind advocates questioned my patriotism i said patriotism never meant that i shall not defend any acccused - so i have to say many don't understand.

1. A Professional Lawyer MUST be a "ABSOLUTE neutral person". Neither True. Neither False. He is not to anticipate /decide the legal Fate of the Accused /Complainant. That is the responsibility of the Judge.
2. A Professional Lawyer must be free of all "Sentiments and Emotions", which-so-ever. A Lawyer should not take over the responsibility of the Judge.
3. It is beyond the God'ly doctor, for him to even think that he will not operate on a Criminal's body or think that he will not conduct autopsy of a Criminal's body..
4. A Hotel Cook, will not think that he will not cook for a Criminal. Incidentally, In India, we have very very high ranking people who are Criminals, who are even Rajya Sabha members and have fled the Country.
Keep Smiling .... Hemant Agarwal
This useful article reminds me of Lawyer Mr.Stanley, of Kansas, who defended a negro murder and was convicted, and after the sentence, Stanley, made a strong endorsement to Kansas Governor for pardon. But before his endorsement reaches the Governor, Stanley himself was elected as the Governor of Kansas, who rejected his own endorsement saying "As Governor I am to view the matter in an entirely different light"
