Defense attorney’s and judge’s views on plea bargaining (summarize
Plea bargaining involves the person on trial making admission to lessen the damage caused by the case. Attorneys may advise this, especially where the problem will uncover more evidence that would have dire consequences to the defendant. In a case where the jury is likely to vote against the defendant, the plea bargain is also advised to reduce the severity of the sentence. However, most plea bargains are limited by the defendant.
