"The Beating That Never Happened" pic 3
Of course, we had the option of representing ourselves if we so chose, but that would be depriving our Advocate friends of some dosh. Also, if you represented yourself, you usually got fined more, so what was the point.
Nope, much easier to let your Advocate tell you that you have to plead guilty or they will not represent you. Sometimes you were actually lucky enough to save yourself some money if the case went through smoothly and quickly, no need to waste precious time and money calling corrupt policemen to testify. Saved the States a fortune, that little ruse, and you were usually fined less.
Every one's a winner, except the innocent victim, but who cares right !
