Should I agree to a plea bargain?

Video Transcription:

You should never agree to a plea bargain without reviewing the facts with a competent criminal defense attorney. In reviewing the probable cause affidavit, a competent attorney can determine whether or not the evidence is sufficient for the state to prosecute.

If there appears to be room to make the argument that the evidence is insufficient, then of course a competent lawyer would never make the recommendation to plea but rather to fight the charges. However, sometimes fighting can be problematic. If after review of the evidence counsel determines that the evidence is, in fact, sufficient, the next step should be to secure the most beneficial negotiated settlement in the form of a plea possible.
