Eric, you raise a good point about the wisdom of telling your lawyer everything - good or bad. I also remind my clients that they are going to be nervous at their hearing, and when you are nervous, you tend to blurt things out like your client did. Any lie, even a little one, will call into question your credibility and if a judge catches you lying about anything, he will assume you are lying about everything.

Thanks for reading, Jon!

It has certainly been my experience that oaths calculated to awaken the conscience do just that, awaken the conscience. I know criminal defense attorneys wrestle with knowing the truth, but in my experience in my practice areas, I have a have a hard time helping folks unless I know what's really going on.
