The mechanics of plea bargaining

Georgia residents may be familiar with a strategy used by criminal defense attorneys known as plea bargaining or plea negotiation. As the term suggests, plea bargaining is an effort in which a criminal defense attorney works with a prosecutor to obtain a lesser charge for his or her client. It can be done at court in the prosecutor's office or over the telephone. Plea negotiations could also help a defendant avoid trial, which may otherwise end up in a conviction on a more serious charge. There are three types of plea bargaining negotiations: charge bargaining, sentence bargaining and fact bargaining.
