A plea bargain is an agreement in a criminal case between the prosecutor and defendant, where the defendant agrees to plead guilty or no contest to a charge in exchange for some form of leniency from the prosecution. This could mean reducing the charges, dismissing some of the charges, or recommending a lighter sentence.

It's a common misconception that a plea bargain means admitting complete guilt. On the contrary, it's often a strategic move used to minimize the impact of a DUI charge on your life.

Choosing to enter a plea bargain can yield numerous benefits, including reduced legal costs, less severe penalties, and a quicker resolution to your case. It can also provide a measure of certainty that is often preferable to the unpredictability of a trial.

With our extensive experience, we're equipped to outline the pros and cons of pursuing a plea bargain, ensuring you can make a choice that aligns with your best interests.

The plea bargain process often starts with the defense attorney reaching out to the prosecution to discuss potential agreements. This is a delicate phase where the groundwork for a potential deal is laid out.

Our linked attorneys approach this conversation prepared with a solid plan and a keen understanding of the prosecution's possible strategies.
