I Need The Opinion Of Those Conversant With Criminal Law by Chechem: 8:31pm On Dec 04
I have a case in court, its a fraud case and trial has began. The accused confessed to the crime when they were arrested but pleaded not guilty in court. The wanted to settle out of court but what they are offering is not even up to half of what they defrauded.

Now I want to go ahead with the full trial because with the evidences and their confessional statements, I believe they will be convicted.

My problem now this that I am hearing that the court will only convict them and sentence them to prison, that part of the sentence will not be for them to refund the money that they defrauded. Please house, if such thing happen, how will I recover my money back? Although some of their properties were seized.

Please I need advice, I made a mistake falling into their hands in the quest to make out something out of live. Thanks

I'm talking from experience, it doesn't matter whether the case is still in court or not, because the prosecutor can always apply to the court at anytime to withdraw any case!

Ypu can tell the prosecutor at anytime categorically to withdraw your case from court provided u've got what u wanted (restitution of ur property by the thieves or the financial equivalent of what they stole!!! cool
