Welcome to MOTIFS, where I follow cultural and literary images found in the Bible in an attempt to unearth God's meaning in His pattern of usage.


Plea Bargaining was introduced in Japan in June 2018. The first plea bargaining case under this system, in July 2018, involved allegations of corruption at Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems in Thailand. [58] The second case was an agreement reached in November 2018 to obtain evidence of a violation of accounting and securities legislation against Nissan executives Carlos Ghosn and Greg Kelly. [59] The culprit is the recognition of the offence or criminality. Debt compensation is usually not what a defense attorney would recommend in a case, unless there is a good reason. Good reasons are that the verdict can be very good in exchange for the admission of guilt or other charges could be added, unless you plead guilty, as now accused. An accused who refuses to make a plea is generally interpreted as a not guilty plea; For example, the federal penal code says, “If an accused refuses to plead or if a defendant organization does not show up, the court must plead not guilty.” [4] When an accused attempts to make an unorthodox plea (a “creative plea”), this is generally interpreted as a non-guilty plea. [5] For example, an accused accused of a crime he committed while protesting against nuclear energy, who made his plea entitled “I plead for the beauty that surrounds us.” [6] Mitigation advocacy is a term used in criminal proceedings in many Commonwealth countries. Typically, a lawyer is informed by a judge of extenuating circumstances that could result in a lesser sentence for an offender. [11] At trials, defendants plead guilty to a crime less serious than the original charge against them. During negotiations, they pleaded guilty to a subset of several original charges. As part of the sentence, they plead guilty and have agreed in advance on the sentence to be sentenced; However, this judgment can always be rejected by the judge. In fact, the accused plead guilty, but the prosecutor agrees to define certain facts (i.e., confirm or admit) that affect how the accused is punished in accordance with criminal guidelines.

Other specific pleadings used in criminal cases are the plea of mental incompetence which calls into question the jurisdiction of the court for the person of the accused, the plea in bar, which assaults the jurisdiction of the court for the offence complained of, and the plea of reduction used to correct procedural defects in the indictment of the accused. is not on the “front” of the indictment or other instrument of indictment. Special actions in federal criminal matters have been abolished and defenses, once formulated by special plea, are now filed by application for dismissal. In 2007, the Sakharam Bandekar case was the first such case in India where the accused, Sakharam Bandekar, sought a lesser sentence in exchange for a confession to his crime (using pleadings). However, the court rejected his request and accepted the CBI`s argument that the accused faced serious corruption charges. [36] Eventually, the court sentenced Bandekar to three years in prison. [37] In the United States, investigations have shown that defendants who plead guilty receive lower sentences than similar defendants who exercise their right to a trial. Statistics have shown that the average sentence following a jury conviction is generally much longer than that of defendants who plead guilty. .
