Study on the Sentencing Recommendation System under the Plea Leniency System

Dongping He


The most important part under the plea leniency system is the sentencing recommendation system, which as a heirloom
culture is controversial but has the necessity and feasibility in judicial practice.The practical application of this emerging system
in China has likewise given rise to many problems, such as varying standards of leniency, lack of experience in sentencing
recommendations by the procuratorial authorities, and overly formalized participation by duty lawyers in terms of effectiveness,
resulting in obstacles for the supervisory authorities in making sentencing recommendations.Therefore, it is necessary for us to
study the sentencing recommendation system so as to guarantee the dual realization of the sentencing recommendation system in
terms of procedure and substance.
