Spanish term or phrase: solicito la libertad plena de mi defendido
Greetings everyone.
After alleging their clients’ innocence, lawyers request the Court:

“solicito la libertad plena y sin restricciones de mi defendido/
solicito la libertad plena y total de mi defendido”

I have been hesitating between

[I request]
(1) the unconditional and unrestricted release of my client
(2) the immediate and unrestricted release of my client
(3) the unrestricted freedom of my client
(4) the complete acquittal of my client

I would highly appreciate your advice on this matter.
Many thanks in advance

Explanation:
There are a number of ways you can translate the phrases. Below, you will find some. However, number four (acquittal) is a stretch.

Solicito la libertad plena y sin restricciones de mi defendido. > I request the full and unrestricted release of my client.

Solicito la libertad plena y total de mi defendido. > I request the full and complete release of my client.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  philgoddard: Not "full and complete", though, which is a tautology.
3 mins
  -> I was trying to preserve the tautology expressed in the original. Thank you for your agree, Phil.

agree  Robert Forstag: I would say that “unconditional” would be the word needed here. “Full release “ or “unrestricted release” sound odd.
12 mins
  -> That was my initial assessment as well. However, I think it would be better to avoid “unconditional” since, I presume, there is always the “condition” to return to ct. until the case is resolved. Reg “full,” maybe can be held on 1 case but not other, etc.

agree  AllegroTrans: No embellishment needed; consider possibility that bail is being asked for here
52 mins
  -> Yes. And even if the person is released on his/her own recognizance, there is still the condition of returning to court. Thank you, Chris.
