Plea Bargain vs. Trial
Our attorneys are former Los Angeles DUI prosecutors, having tried over a hundred jury and court trials to verdict. We consider many variables – including the client’s background, the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecutor’s case, the results of the defense investigation, the results of blood-split forensic testing, and the reliability of the breath testing equipment – in advising a client whether a jury trial is in his or her best interest.
A plea bargain is offered by the prosecution wherein you plead “guilty” or “no contest” to a lesser charge, avoiding a potentially lengthy and expensive trial. By accepting a plea bargain, you may also receive lessened or alternative sentencing and even have some of your charges dismissed. As part of the plea bargain, the charges that are dismissed should not show up on your criminal record.
Your Los Angeles DUI attorneys will be able to advise you on whether to accept a plea bargain. The truth of the matter is that pleading guilty may not be the right decision for your particular case. You may benefit from taking your DUI charge to trial where you can be found “not guilty” and walk away with a clean record. With the expertise of a skilled trial attorney, you will be able to make the correct choice which will benefit your DUI case.
