Thanks for the information
You can alwayswrite a letter to the judge. Defendants do regularly. The question is whetherit achieves anything.
There isn'tlikely to be much that you can say in a letter that counsel cannot say to thejudge . Also that would have the advantage of having counsls view of anythingthat goes before the judge.
However, if youare intent, then you can write to the judge. It is usually a good idea and safeenough to express remorse. You might want to offer some information about whythe offence was committed.
It will be avery good idea show this to your barrister without sending it anywhere thoughespecially if you were going to comment on why you committed the offence as itmay do more harm than good.
The only pointto these things is either to express remorse or to show that you are a reformedcharacter. If you can't do one of those things then it would be better to leaveit to your barrister
