Alternatives to prosecution
Dec 14th, 2008 at 5:15pm
 
Hi all,

I'm needing some help with an assignment for my criminal practice class.

We have to write a letter to the PF asking him to take a different course of action with regard to the client. They have decided to prosecute, even though there are mitigating circumstances. I think we are supposed to ask the PF to desert the case at the next calling, or continue it. I'm not too sure why I would be asking for it to be contined though.

Any ideas atall?

You are trying to persuade the PF not to proceed with the case. i presume it is minor in nature and you need to set out reasons why he should do so. There is no need to ask to continue the case as you are asking him to drop it. have you consodered getting a private tutor. There is an excellent on to be found at Tutors4me. co. uk.
