Abstract: The agreement for the admission of guilt can be defined as an understanding which may be completed and concluded in the phase of penal investigation, during an ongoing penal procedure, between the prosecutor and the defendant under investigation, by which the latter agrees to recognize the entire content of evidential material as proof she is guilty of a certain accusation brought against her, in exchange for obtaining certain concessions or milder treatment by the prosecution. This means, among other things, that the defendant shall plead guilty to a lesser accusation or to one or more of the accusations brought against her, in exchange for the prosecution waiving the penal consequences of the commission of other infractions, or admitting guilt to an infraction in exchange for a less severe penalty.
