And that's whether you're in a courtroom or a living room. To do otherwise, is nothing more than vigilantism and choosing the option that best fits the individual's agenda and arms' length information.
Follow the valid evidence to a conclusion not the reverse. Isn't that the criteria we all would hope to be judged by in law and in life?
What about moral laws?http://webster.utahbar.org/barjournal/2 ... the_t.html
On other occasions, a client’s story may repeatedly change as the lawyer’s investigation of the client’s statements and other facts reveal that the client probably has been lying to the lawyer. Does the lawyer do a disservice to the client and the court by not vigorously confronting the client with the inconsistent statements and requiring that the client be truthful? And wouldn’t the client be better served as a human being (and society as well) if the lawyer took the time to talk to the client about taking responsibility for his or her mistakes, making amends to any victim, and leading a more productive and moral life? To both of these questions, I wholeheartedly say “yes.”
From what I have gathered, Antonio Carlo went to Jannsen with a confession he didn't want on paper, and Jannsen made it public, therefore Carlo was off the case. He shut up rather than councelling his client. Joe Tacapino came on interviews with stories they have seen Natalee on film after
Joran left her at the beach. So why is he not free of suspect status then, since they have the proof Natalee was alive and well after the beach?
What Joe is doing/did is morally wrong. He has allowed a situation of "na na, na na na...catch me if you can, rather than councel his client, and Joran has not really shown that he takes much responsibility for any of his actions. The blame goes everywhere...to Peter deVries, the Kalpoes, van der Eem (tells him what he thinks van der Eem wants to hear...well van der Eem apparently wanted the truth) even his parents.
Other than severe (supposedly) interrogation, no one has done anything with all the story changes.
