Just wondering...and no, none of this is true, I am just curious. Let's say I committed a crime, a murder in this instance. I am guilty, and I know it, yet, I am still awarded an attorney. I confess my crime to said attorney. Is that attorney obligated to not enter a plea of "not guilty?" By this, I mean that if I confess a crime to an attorney, is he still allowed to plead not guilty on my behalf? I know there are reasons to deflect guilt, insanity and all sorts of defenses, but where is the legal and ethical line drawn?
