Should You Accept a Plea Bargain?

In some situations, a person facing DWI charges may be willing to admit their guilt in exchange for a plea bargain from the prosecutor to lower their overall punishments in return for their cooperation. These plea bargains can often help a person to get through the criminal justice system faster and with reduced overall penalties.

If you are thinking about accepting a plea bargain, you should first know your full range of options and approach a prosecution’s bargain from that informed position. To discuss your defense case in more detail with a knowledgeable attorney, contact Raleigh DWI lawyer Jim Black today by calling 919-600-4609.

Benefits of Accepting a Plea Bargain

A person considering taking a prosecutor’s plea bargain should think about the benefits of accepting this bargain if they are willing to admit guilt for their DWI. Naturally, this decision should not be taken lightly, as the defendant won’t get a second chance to argue their innocence if they plead guilty.

The following benefits may be available through a plea bargain:

  • Faster legal process
  • Potentially reduced penalties
  • Better standing with the court after sentencing is completed

A person pleading guilty for DWI gives up their defense case. This means that they will have to serve their sentence, as agreed upon by the prosecution. These penalties can be quite severe in some cases. Therefore, accepting a plea bargain should only be done after serious consideration.
