You nailed it! These laws are strickly designed to generate revenue throughout the Judical System or keep lawyers paid. I see it all the time too and
it makes me sick.
Let's say you get charged with a misdemeanor charge of DUI. If found guilty, even on a first offense, you can face up to a year in jail. District
Attorney's use this to their advantage to generate revenue from people who are scared of the process or who have no ability to hire their own
You want to use a Public Defender??? HA!!! They work hand-in-hand with the DA's to generate this revenue. Think about it!! Who uses a Public
Defender?? Usually, its people who cannot afford their own council who do. Well, in 95% of misdemaenor cases the Public Defender will approach their
"client", or VICTIM--that's how I see it, and offer a plea deal that they cannot refuse!!!! THEY CONVINCE YOU that this is your best option!!! It's
all a show!! It's the biggest ponzi scheme going on. In these plea deals, you are forced to lose your driving privledges and told you must complete
some type of court ordered AA class. ALL OF WHICH are ways for your "great state" to generate revenue!!
Do your own research. Many states have this information available publically. If you use your own lawyer and take the charge in front of a Jury (which
could take years BTW) the DA usually backs off outright. For those cases where the Jury decides your fate--especially minor crimes--IF you are found
guilty your punishment for a first offense misdemeanor is usually a $500 fine plus court costs.
In my opinion, I'd rather pay a $500 fine instead of losing my license for a year and having to pay for AA and probation. That's just me though. BUT
the real kicker here...in most states, you cannot even talk to the judge yourself. You have to have representation. It's purely a money
