Should I Accept a DUI Plea Bargain?

Denver Driving Under the Influence Attorney

At times, a defendant may be tempted to accept a plea bargain made by the District Attorney prosecuting his or her DUI case. You may feel that there is no other option available to you and that the only way to avoid maximum charges and penalties will be to plead guilty for a lesser charge. Should you take this option? It is important to get the facts and make a knowledgeable judgment with the guidance of a lawyer.

You may have been arrested for drunk driving in the Denver area after what was described to you as a particularly poor performance on field sobriety tests. You may have taken a breath or blood test that showed a result well above the legal limit of .08%. In light of this evidence, the prosecuting attorney may have told you that you have no hope of avoiding a conviction and that a plea bargain is your only option. If you can relate to any of the scenarios mentioned above, your immediate step should be to contact our Denver DUI attorney at the Law Office of Christopher H. Cessna!

Understanding a Plea Bargain

When a person is facing criminal charges, the District Attorney may make the defendant an offer. This offer involves the defendant pleading guilty in return for a lesser charge and therefore lesser penalties. This means that the case will avoid a lengthy trial and that the defendant may have the opportunity to avoid maximum penalties.
