Most cooperation agreements are left to the discretion of the prosecutor, not the judge, to assess the truth and value of the cooperation between the accused and the witness and to decide whether the judge should be asked for a reduction of sentence. The letter is preceded by a few lines requesting the protection of FRE 410. Otherwise, the declarations to your client can be used as agent approvals under FRE 801 (d) (2) (C). [See § 17:33.] In a letter in which you ask for leniency of the rental, you must indicate valid reasons why you can not pay and what you are doing to change these reasons. Details must be provided on how you will repay your rent and current rent as soon as you can start paying the rent again. It usually takes more than 3 months for a landlord to get a trial date for eviction, so your landlord, I hope, will be reasonable with you. Our daughter was arrested for stealing chapstick from a store in her college town. She received help from student lawyers at her university. Now we have to write to a judge that we will not pay for the costs of hiring a lawyer for our 18-year-old daughter. For chapstick`s theft, it looks like she`s fined over $500, which I think is ridiculous, but hiring a lawyer is even more money. How to formulate it with respect and professionalism? Thank you very much. If we say in this letter that she is an adult and that she must take responsibility for her own actions.
Or should we say it`s due to financial difficulties? We`ve never been there. My belly is to say that she is an adult. But what is the wisest way to do this in our words to the lawyer? I tried: we are at the point where we have to have the letter to the judge in two days. I think it was caused by: I once said my daughter stole Chapstick, it was stupid, her friends did it, so she followed. She is in college and learning life lessons. She was arrested, they took a picture of her, and the judge says she has to go to jail for a few hours to see a movie, and how much money it`s going to cost her, she`s obviously going to learn her lesson. Below is a sample letter in which you ask a judge for a speeding ticket. Replace the information with your own personal data.
Describe any mitigating factors that might convince the judge. If this is a first offence and you do not have any other charges on file, indicate this in the letter. Do not try to minimize the seriousness of the crime committed. If you plead guilty instead, express regret and regret. I received a ticket for 0 for appearing in district court for passing the red light. I can afford the amount. I plead guilty or not. But somehow, I`m boxed. I need help to avoid paying the amount or to postpone the day of court without going to court. Make your plea, be very clear about how you beg. If you plead not guilty to charges of insanity, be sure to include these words.
Defendants involved in court proceedings write pleadings to the judge to respond to the charges against them. A plea is also considered a song of grace of an accused. .
