Plea in Mitigation

If you plead guilty to an offence then it is because you have accepted that you committed the offence that is alleged. However, you may wish to put forward a plea in mitigation to explain the specific circumstances which led to you committing the offence. A plea in mitigation will still result in a punishment being passed but may give additional information to the Court justifying leniency. The court must give credit for an early plea of guilty. This may be by letter.  At Darton Law, we can assist you in writing a letter of mitigation. This is a personalised service and assists the Court when sentencing you.

It is important to receive expert legal advice in relation to mitigation as the Court may reject arguments for which they feel do not go to the central issue in the case. All letters are read before the Court and as such sighting irrelevant things may have a more detrimental effect on your sentence.
