If you’re involved in a criminal case in Singapore and your Criminal Defence Lawyer is attending a Criminal Case Management Scheme (CCMS) meeting on your behalf, your lawyer can highlight the Mitigatory Factors in your case for the Prosecution to consider and in support of your request for a particular outcome.
Here’s some information on what Mitigatory Factors are:
- They are facts which tend to reduce the seriousness of the offence as well as your actions and involvement e.g. information which shows that you are ess culpable, less responsible or more forgivable
- They give the Prosecution a basis to consider being more sympathetic and lenient towards you
