What is appropriate/ inappropriate to include in a judicial impact statement when the accused has accepted a plea bargain? I ask this not knowing what information about the crime is presented to the presiding judge. Is it required of the prosecution and the defense to submit their cases/ evidence prior to sentencing, or how are mitigating circumstances made known to the judge?
The best way to answer this is the police the defence attorney and the prosicution know al most all the case but the defendient states what he wants to for a lessor charge. Like nameing names of those involved in the case or takeing a charge of the table. The bottom line is probation or less time in jail for the offence and possably you get of of all charges.
Other people asked questions on various topics, and are still waiting for answer. Would be great if you can take a sec and answer them
