Plea Bargaining in Queens

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 Queens District Attorney’s Office will usually offer a plea bargain in the vast majority of criminal cases.

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 Queens Criminal Defense Attorney. Many people who are accused of crimes are completely innocent. For these people any sort of plea is simply not acceptable. Queens has a peculiar plead bargaining system. Their public policy is not to offer please after a felony case has been indicted, but this rule is often not followed depending on the facts of the case.
