If you have been charged with a crime in Florida, you will probably have many questions. Some of the questions we frequently receive are related to testifying in court. Find out here in this video if you will need to testify in front of a jury.

As a Fort Lauderdale criminal defense attorney, it is my opinion that having a friendly and believable defendant testify in court can be beneficial to a case. Defendants who look a juror in the eye and make a connection with the jury typically have an advantage; however, jurors are not supposed to take a defendant’s silence into consideration when evaluating a case. Anyone who does not want to testify does not have to, but our clients are never put on the witness stand without thorough preparation. You will know the questions that are likely to be asked by the prosecutors and how to answer them in order to get your point across.
