Us Attorney Manual Deferred Prosecution Agreement

Government counsel should recommend sanctions on the basis of an individual assessment of the facts and circumstances of each case and the history and qualities of the accused, regardless of the accused`s race, religion, sex, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation or political association, activities or beliefs. What do you mean? JM 9-27.260 outlines various facts that clearly should not influence the decision to prosecute or recommend prosecution or to take other action. They are not mentioned here because it is expected that any government lawyer will be able to authorize them to influence his judgment, but to clarify that federal lawyers are not influenced by such inappropriate considerations. Of course, in a case where a specific feature, mentioned in the first paragraph, is relevant to the criminal offence (for example. B in an immigration case, the fact that the offender is not the state of the United States, in a terrorism case, the fact that the person is part of a terrorist organization that uses violence in part for political purposes or, in a civil rights case, that the victim and the perpetrator are of different origins), the provision would not prohibit the prosecutor from considering such a quality. Before laying or recommending charges as part of a preload plea agreement, counsel for the government should consult the provisions of JM 9-27.430`s oral arguments relating to the selection of charges to which an accused should be required to plead guilty. These principles of the federal crown give federal lawyers an explanation of the policy and practice of prosecution. As such, they should promote the justified exercise of the Crown and contribute to a fair and equitable management of federal criminal law. [99] See z.B.
