Will this case go to trial?
Only a small percent of criminal cases go to trial, but many are set for trial. In most cases, the defendant pleads guilty. A plea negotiation is an agreement between the prosecutor and defense attorney to settle a criminal case by a plea of guilty or other appropriate disposition without a trial. A plea agreement is a way of settling a criminal case whenever it appears that the interest of the public, the victim, and the effective administration of criminal justice will be served without a trial.
