How to avoid prison?
Criminal law is a very broad concept. The most frequent cases that a legal adviser’s client may face are preparatory and court proceedings in connection with the suspicion of committing a crime. Initially, it is conducted in a “case”, and then against a specific person or persons to whom specific charges have been raised, i.e. they are considered suspicious of committing a specific crime. Depending on the evidence collected and the attitude of the suspect himself, there are many scenarios that can be completed by such a preparatory proceeding. Most often, preparatory proceedings result in bringing an indictment to the court, where, after reading the above-mentioned indictment, the defendant is put at the disposal of the court. Then the court will decide on the guilt or innocence of the accused.
It is also possible to conclude a peculiar settlement with the prosecutor and agree a reasonable punishment for the accused. We distinguish two modes in which it may be enough for the so-called consensual settling of the matter, the first with it is a request for issuing a conviction and convicting penalties agreed with the defendants and other means provided for by the law, the other is an application for conviction and for a specific penalty or a criminal remedy, forfeiture or compensatory measure without taking evidence.
A legal counsel as a defender of a suspect or accused person may join an ongoing trial at any stage.
The legal advisor is not only entitled to provide legal assistance to the suspect or the accused, but also to the aggrieved party who, in the criminal trial, has the right to participate as an auxiliary prosecutor. The legal advisor, as the representative of the auxiliary prosecutor, is responsible for ensuring that the penalty imposed on the accused is appropriate and, above all, that the injured party will be repaired by the accused.
Do not forget about the proceedings in an offense case, where the legal advisor as a defender can defend the interests of the accused.
