In cases of leniency, there is absolutely no need to plead, as the key witness may escape prosecution altogether. This paves the way for the prosecutor to adapt the verdict to the accused`s co-operative and opens the door to crown witnesses in Swedish courts, critics say. This article and most of the comments mentioned above unmask some stereotypical ideas of advocacy about the bargain. I agree with Patrik. Plea A good deal is for me on the guilty plea against the prosecutor asking for a lower sentence.

Arguments on economic crime do not apply to foreigners in the United States, but only to U.S. citizens, which is not the case in criminal law. Does anyone know why? However, there is a more reasonable advocacy idea, namely a reduction in sentence for those who contribute to the investigation of their own crime (the complexity of economic and other crime is of particular interest).
This has both saved survey results and reduced implementation costs. These resources can then be used to investigate other crimes. You should, of course, either study law or study a basic Swedish course. At least, if we want to speak with authority on these two subjects. It is particularly relevant in this case, because in the case of pleas, a finding such that the accused does speak to the prosecutor. If she decides to shut up, there will finally be a trial.

Everyone has seen it in American movies and TV shows. How the hardened criminal manages to negotiate a lighter sentence, if at all, by denouncing an even tougher criminal, higher up the food chain. It`s a good plea deal. Anyone assisting in a criminal investigation receives a discount or benefit from the legal community in exchange for legal action. Different arguments may make the case for such a provision. In Sweden, we generally shook our heads about the idea of advocacy. The guilt of hardened criminals is not reduced by insulting other criminals. It is almost the opposite: they are not only hardened criminals, but also unfaithful and fraudulent criminals.
