Georgia Law On Plea Agreement
I read the criminal information against me and I spoke with my lawyer. I understand the charges and the elements of any reproach that the government would have to prove to try me in a trial. I read Plea`s agreement above and reviewed every part of it carefully with my lawyer. I understand the terms of the Plea agreement and I voluntarily endorse them. I have also discussed with my counsel the rights I may have to challenge or challenge my sentence, and I understand that the quashing of the appeal contained in The Plea Agreement will prevent me from challenging my sentence or challenging my sentence in a post-conviction trial, with the narrow exceptions that are mentioned. No one threatened or forced me to plead guilty and I was not given any promises or incentives other than those discussed in the Plea agreement. The discussions between my lawyer and the government on obtaining a plea in this case took place with my permission. I am fully satisfied with the representation my counsel has provided to me in this matter. The Plea negotiations were not de jured in Georgia until the beginning of the vast reform programme put in place by President Mice Saakashvili`s “young reformer”.
The success of the fight against organized crime depended heavily on the willingness of offenders to cooperate with the investigation. This is why the national law of criminal procedure was changed immediately after Saakashvili became president and a new procedure, called the “procedural agreement”, was introduced. Subsequently, this procedure was supplemented by a particular type of procedural agreement – the Special Cooperation Agreement. If all three components are satisfactory to the judge, the judge will likely accept the plea contract. I wrote a few different articles about the Georgia Criminal Process last month. Something that can be very confusing to understand is how (except jury trial or bench trial) a case can be resolved. Not all cases go to court to find a solution.
