If you decide to testify at your trial, you will have only one chance to convince the jury that you are believable.
If the jury thinks you are trying to mislead them, they will reject your testimony, and possibly your entire defense strategy. Discuss how to testify with your lawyer, as well as the differences between direct and cross-examination before you make the final decision to give up your right to remain silent.
