In making the decision to charge, the prosecutor enjoys broad discretion, weighing various factors including contextual, situational, statistical factor as well as statistical analysis and the applicability of alternative prosecutions,” said Public Prosecutions Secretary, Dorcas Oduor in a document presented to the committee yesterday.
She explained that the standard in making a decision to charge is whether there is a reasonable prospect of conviction. She however said cases relating to cheating and exam malpractice, most perpetrators are minors.
