Never Confess to a crime you didn’t commit

I was shocked at the hounding of taxi driver Ryan Barney who did his public duty by racing to ferry people away from the scene of a London terrorist attack. Yes – he went through a red light. So what? It was an emergency.

But it’s too easy to feel pressured into pleading guilty to a bad prosecution when you should fight to clear your name. Yes there are risks in contesting. It is expensive and you may get a heavier sentence if you are convicted after a trial. But pleading guilty is never the easy way out – whatever your lawyer tells you. You’re still saddled with the conviction and no-way of appealing it.
