Thanks for giving such a nice information on the criminal cases. It would really be helpful to those people who have applied any case or is suffering presently in some case. All the cases are very difficult and complicated to solve if proper lawyer is not appointed. All the cases depends upon the severity of the offence. If the offence is not too sever then a criminal only gets bail or vice versa.
