Creating a good criminal defense case is integral to keeping your reputation safe when you're accused of a crime. Usually, you'll be able to work with your attorney to create a defensive strategy when you know what the prosecution plans to say or do. If the prosecution doesn't have good evidence, for instance, you may decide that pleading innocent is the best choice for your defense. If there is decent evidence, you may need to introduce doubt into your case, so you can't be convicted because of reasonable doubt about your involvement or the reasons behind your involvement.
The way you act if you have to be interviewed in court or if you have to speak on your own behalf will also change how your case moves forward. If you can present a convincing argument, you may be in a better position than if you present a case that doesn't stand up against the prosecution's claims.
The truth as you see it is what your claims should explain. There are two sides to every story, and making your side clear is your job. However, you are not the one who has to prove your innocence; it's the prosecutions job to prove guilt. If the prosecution can't do that, then you'll be less likely to be found guilty.
