No matter how many years one lives here in the DR, whether Dominican or not, it is quite impossible to fully understand the various twists and turns in the law and order system in this country. There are so many judgments and decisions that are never explained and so many cases go to court that are not properly prepared that the accused are either released or are sent to prison until sufficient money is produced for their release. Or on the other hand perpetrators of crimes are not brought to justice for various reasons. Who ever knows of all the dealings behind the scenes to either convict or release.

Very true. The way business is done. It's just as easy to observe an aggressive prosecutor, or a defense lawyer, or even the Procurador express their frustrations about the way things go. If they get bamboozled, imagine us poor everyday folks.
