A: CORRECT.

B: The placement of "depending on the motive.." is ambiguous in a way here but in both cases it doesn't make sense. If it modifies the previous clause, it doesn't make sense with subject . the legal proceedings. I don't think it can act as a modifier for the clause "the guilty..." and it won't even make sense with the subject - guilty.

C: ING modifier at the end of sentence after comma must make sense with the subject of the clause. The guilty doesn't make sense with "depending..."

D: Same issue as C. The guilty is not depending on the motive of the crime.

E: Same issue as C. The guilty is not depending on the motive of the crime.
