It is the People of the State of California against you. Basically, that means all the power of the State is coming down on you through a law enforcement agency and the District Attorney’s office. They can and will lie to you in order to gain the upper hand. Even relatively minor criminal charges can have a negative impact on your life, or your job. An example might be a speeding ticket. Depending on where you work, it could cause you to lose your job. If you lose your job, will you be able to pay your mortgage or your rent?
