Rearrangement – within the area of Criminal Law, this term describes a conviction against the criminal with amended or changed act of indictment. Usually, this procedure understood as “re-conviction”, happens in cases where the prosecution has found new pieces of evidence. These prove that the convicted has performed another crime. It will replace the initial reasonable belief for a particular crime. Very often rearrangement leads to amendment in the conviction decree. Therefore this may bring the lawsuit back at the initial stage for re-hearing.
