Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney with more than 18 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. I am here to help
Also, if you would like to chat on the phone, let me know and I can make that happen.
It is standard for the attorney to help negotiate a plea agreement...but, frankly, most all criminal charges result in a plea agreement.
In your case, the real question is "what evidence does the state have". IF they have a tough case (not much evidence, no confession)? Then it may be worth considering taking to trial and making the state prove your guilt.
But if the state has a strong case? Frankly...the deal you describe (dropping from felony to misdemeanor) is a good deal
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
