Diferencias en el comportamiento defensores públicos en el contexto de la Reforma Procesal Penal chilena


  • Mauro Gutiérrez
  • Jorge Rivera


La Defensoría Penal Pública chilena es el organismo encargado de proveer servicios de defensa penal en el contexto de la nueva justicia nacional (Reforma Procesal Penal). Para ello, o bien contrata abogados en forma directa (abogados institucionales) o bien licita los servicios a estudios jurídicos, quienes a su vez contratan abogados para el efecto (abogados licitados). A fines del año 2004 hubo un cambio en el mecanismo de licitación, pasando de pagar un precio por tipo de salida de cada causa penal a pagar un precio único por la misma. En este trabajo se analiza si dicho cambio afectó el comportamiento de los abogados licitados. En forma adicional, se analiza si el desempeño de los abogados licitados es distinto de los abogados institucionales.
