Will My Case Go to Trial?
Many individuals are under the impression that when they decide to fight
their charges, they will have to go to court. However, the majority of
cases are resolved without a need for a trial. In many situations, our
legal team is able to get the prosecutors to drop the charges against
our clients. Some cases are resolved through plea bargain – a deal
with the prosecution to reduce the charges in exchange for a guilty plea.
This not only decreases the penalties the individual will face, but also
enables them to avoid the inconvenience and cost of a trial.
Of course, if the prosecution team is unwilling to agree to a fair outcome,
the Law Offices of Brady L. Pendleton is prepared to fight your charges
in court. We have a proven track record of obtaining “not guilty”
verdicts, case dismissals, and reduced sentences. Our defense attorney
has the knowledge and resources to go up against the toughest prosecution
teams and is committed to obtaining the best possible results in every case.
Should I Accept a Plea Bargain?
The answer to this question depends on your specific situation. It is often
in a person’s best interest to accept a plea bargain because it
means reduced consequences from what they could have originally faced,
and they can avoid going to court.
However, a plea bargain is not right for everyone. It might be that the
prosecution team may be presenting a plea deal because they know they
do not have enough evidence to convict you in court. In other words, they
may be bluffing, and you can obtain better results by not accepting the
plea bargain. In addition, accepting a plea bargain means that you are
pleading guilty, which leads to a conviction being placed on your permanent
record. This can lead to trouble obtaining work, applying for loans, and
getting an education in the future. Our legal team can help you evaluate
your case so you can make an informed decision.
