If you face criminal charges in Oklahoma, you likely are nervous about the prospect of going to trial and putting your fate in the hands of a jury. As you attorney may have told you, however, the majority of American criminal cases never get to the trial stage. Instead, defendants may accept a plea bargain. It is possible that the prosecutor may offer you a plea bargain, too.
A plea bargain is an agreement negotiated between the prosecutor who represents the government’s interests and your attorney who represents your interests. Naturally each of them wants to make the best “deal” possible for the side (s)he represents given the circumstances of your case. You, of course, have the ultimate choice as to whether or not you accept whatever bargain they arrive at.
