The Best Possible Defense

Yes I think it's reasonable to think that defendants - certainly criminal, though to a lesser extent civil - are legally entitled the strongest defense possible. Though as with many similar legal things, that they are legally entitled to do it doesn't compel them to do it. Someone who is guilty as shit doesn't have to compound their offense - moral, if not legal - by doing so and we can think he's an asshole if he does it.
