Many cases are resolved with a plea bargain, which is when there is an agreement between the defense and the prosecutor. Many people wonder if they actually need an attorney to negotiate a plea. The fact is that negotiating a plea can be very tricky in South Florida. And in all of its jurisdictions, including Miami Dade county, Broward county and Palm Beach county, having a lawyer is very important and crucial to negotiate a good deal.
In negotiating a plea, the defendant will agree to plead guilty or no contest, and in return have a lesser sentence recommended to the judge by the prosecutor, or even have the charges reduced, or sometimes dropped, by the prosecutor.
If you or someone you know is being charged with a crime, it is important to have an experienced attorney representing you. Call an experienced South Florida criminal defense attorney.
