Plea Bargaining in Brooklyn

There was a time in America where prosecutors and defense attorneys did not know if plea bargaining was legal. The Supreme Court eventually gave the process its stamp of approval and today, the vast majority of criminal cases are resolved through a plea bargain. The process of plea bargaining involves the defendant agreeing to plead guilty to some charges in exchange for the dismissal of others. Usually the prosecutor will dismiss the top charge if the defendant will plead to lesser charges.

The major question that arises in all criminal cases is simple. Is this a good plead deal? Should You take the deal? These are very complex questions and can only be answered after all of the evidence has been reviewed byan experienced Brooklyn Criminal Defense Attorney. Many people who are accused of crimes are completely innocent. For these people any sort of plea is simply not acceptable. They have done nothing wrong. However, prosecutors do not like to dismiss cases outright. So they will offer pleas that involve very little punishment in order to obtain a conviction of something on the case.
