Criminal law

Defense Attorney You are a criminal defense attorney who typically defends low-income adults accused of drug offenses and other nonviolent crimes; your success rate is well known in your community. You receive a visit from the girlfriend of a man who is facing trial for a particularly brutal and heinous robbery-homicide. The victim was a seven-year-old child who was sexually assaulted and tortured before being murdered. The evidence against the accused is overwhelming, including a voluntary confession given to the arresting officer. It is clear that the confession was given without any prompting and that all procedures were followed. Nonetheless, the defendant has had a change of heart and is going to trial to zealously fight a conviction. The girlfriend offers you an enormous sum of money as a retainer and makes it clear that you can name your price for defending this person. Answer the following questions:

a. Would you defend this person? Why or why not?
