    Morality is not just restricted to a particular profession or a particular section of the Society. Otherwise a nation becomes a Nation of Decadent nation.

    @Chinmoy : Sorry if you feel I got you wrong. That was not the intention. I am not able to recall any trial where the accused has accepted guilt in a court and that is the end of the trial. Human nature being what it is rarely anyone will agree to his guilt taking the chance that he may escape free.

    @Vijay James Earl Ray,the killer of Martin Luther King did plead guilty and so did Godse by owning up the murder of Gandhi.In the USA "plea bargaining" decides most of the criminal cases which is also accepted in majority of European countries and after much hesitation and intense deliberations India too has warmed up to it by introducing this concept in our Cr. PC.It is true that it rare in human to be repenting but the prospect of lesser punishment would force many accused to resort to plea bargaining and help decongesting thousands of criminal cases which clog Indian courts today.The new chapter XXIA in the Cr. PC,I believe,is just a small beginning.

    Iwas talking un the Indian condition and am happy that a plea bargaining system has been introduced in India also. If t helps in decongesting it is a good but still the services of lawyers on both sides will be needed.

    There are such cases, where lawyers did not agree to defend the criminals. But how many such lawyers are there?

    There were some cases like 'Nithari murders' in U.P. where lawyers refused to argue for the accused. But this is  sentimental and not professional attitude. a lawyer must accept every assignment.  He can defend his client best way not necessarily by misrepresenting. Actually, it is the prosecution that will prove that the accused is guilty. The accused's lawyer is  defence counsel whose job is just to cross examine the witness of the prosecution and find holes in the prosecution case. He will work for proving the client not guilty or getting him benefit of doubt or lighter punishment.  In fact, there can be no court proceedings unless the accused gets opportunity to defend himself. So it is necessary in interest of administration of justice that accused gets defence counsel- whatever be his nature of crime. 

    OK. what happens if the defense council fails to prove the guilt of the accused, who was found to be committing a murder in the broad day light in the presence of onlookers, and he buys them with his money power ?

     Your question is technically wrong! It's not the duty of defense council to prove the accused guilty. However if there is no witness then as they say the justice dends on proofs.

     

    I had a doubt. And it has been cleared now/

     

    I am surprised to note that you were in doubt whether defense council tries to prove his client guilty or tries to save him!

    Such doubts are bound to occur in a person like me who has scanty knowledge about  a particular subject and with  confidence, that knowledgeable people can cover  me. After all the spirit of these forums are to learn from the knowledgeable and ever willing members to lend their knowledge.

     

    Simply, instead of prosecution, defence counsel has been mentioned. Just correct this much and answer is clear. The question is what happens if proseution cannot prove that accused is guilty. Just the accused will be acquitted. He will be even given benefit of doubtif there is no convincing evidence.
