Prosecution

Prosecution is the legal process of bringing a criminal or civil case against an individual or organization in a court of law. In criminal cases, the prosecution is usually carried out by a government agency, such as a district attorney’s office, on behalf of the state or federal government. The prosecution’s job is to present evidence and arguments to convince the court that the defendant is guilty of the crime they have been charged with. In civil cases, the prosecution may be carried out by an individual or organization who is seeking damages or some other form of relief from the defendant. The prosecution must prove their case by a preponderance of the evidence, which means that it is more likely than not that the defendant is liable for the damages or other relief sought.
