The role of a prosecutor or “minister of justice” is to help the court to find the truth and bring accused to justice with accordance to the laws and norms of validity. A prosecutor denotes interests of the community but not any personal ones.
Furthermore, there are some steps which need to be done for a successful presentation of the prosecutor in the court, who defends victims and seeks the truth. In the trial, the prosecutor presents several roles simultaneously. He should be convincing and wise persuader, interviewer, and interrogator.
From the beginning of the trial, a task of the prosecutor is to present the case to the presiding judge or jurors if it is not a jury trial. It goes without saying that he should clarify or deliver a speech considering reasons of defendant’s sentence to crime, for example, murder, rape or burglary, and prove his culpability. For instance, a prosecutor speaks ultimately to jurors and underlines the case which may comprise a description of time when crime has happened, its circumstances, a way a defendant has broken the law, his actions after committing a crime. Moreover, a prosecutor clarifies why an accused is guilty. He explains the jurors about particular proof, for instance, DNA evidence. A prosecutor should persuade the presiding judge or the jurors that an accused is guilty. He should give a closing argument to summarize a particular case applying to spectators who testifies, presented proofs, and reasons to sentence an accused person.
A prosecutor has a right to ask spectators he calls to the direct questions concerning the case. While a prosecutor calls a spectator to the stand, he can represent such proofs as diagrams, evidence, and photographs.
When a defense attorney calls spectators, it is a prosecutor’s task to question them. A prosecutor has to wait to interrogate every spectator until the defense completes its line of questioning. When a prosecutor starts questioning spectators, he applies to another approach. In exchange of being an interviewer, he is more like an investigator. A prosecutor permanently questions spectators concerning answers they gave to the defense. In its turn, a prosecutor may or may not give evidence while asking questions to the spectators.
The role of a defense attorney is to offer lawful representation for a person who is accused and committed a violation of the laws or when a personality is called in a lawsuit where the party filing the lawsuit searches equitable relief or monetary damages. In either a civil case or a criminal case, one can ask the help of a defense attorney. Finally, the role of a defense attorney is to give a mettlesome representation for her or his client and vindicate a client in a lawsuit. The responsibilities of a defense attorney include the interpretation of oral arguments in court, examining and investigating lawful documents and proofs, evolving the relations with a client, and defending the innocence of a client in the best possible way. These responsibilities are peculiar and demand a lot of lawful expertise and empathy of humans. Furthermore, a defense attorney should always fight for the innocence of a client. Considering defense attorney’s functions, he should be prepared to stand the court and present the interests of client’s case in the best light. What is more, a defense attorney is obliged to represent himself or herself in the best way, showing professionalism and deep knowledge in the criminal codes and laws. Finally, the main task of a defense attorney is not only proving innocence of a client but also his total dedication.
The role of criminal is to be attentive listening the jury and attorneys, be honest as much as it is possible, and present himself or herself in the most appropriate way in the court.
It is a common knowledge that the role of victims is rather critical in the future success of the case and prosecution. Before the initiation of the prosecution, there is an array of thing a victim can do to raise the possibility of success of any prosecution in the future.
Victimization affects every participant of the trial including prosecutor, defense attorney, criminal, and victim. Obviously, if a prosecutor is victimized he or she would find additional evidences to show people the truth and send an accused person to the prison. Defense attorney, being at a trial and representing interests of a client in the best way would only find the needed proofs to show people that a client is innocent and needs support. Criminal, in any way, would receive a severe attitude and possible punishment in the prison, especially if it is about rapes. Unfortunately, a victim is the only person who would suffer from the injustice and ask a plea to re-examination of the case.
The goal of sentencing associated with prosecutor is to represent the legal evidences and reveal all the gospel and unvarnished truth. A defense attorney is obliged to defend the interests of a client, seeking the additional proofs to convince every person in the court of the client’s innocence. The criminal should always state about his innocence and represent a preferable attitude towards people in the court. The victim should tell the truth and trust the juries and an attorney. The main aims of alternative sanctions are to mitigate a punishment and be fair to people. Victims should always trust to their advocates, recollect needed information, and tell the evidences honestly. Furthermore, victims should remember that they would always have the support of juries and other people in the court. Finally, victims should immediately raise their self-esteem and turn back to normal life.
