Taking a plea bargain is not always in your best interest. If your charges should be dismissed because the prosecutor cannot prove their case, then taking a plea bargain is harmful. It is very important to understand that when you take a plea bargain, you are pleading guilty to an offense, and that stays on your record, unless you get a deferred judgement sentence and successfully complete that deferred sentence.
If you fail to successfully completing a deferred judgement sentence you have a conviction on your record. In state court, most offenses stay on your record for the rest of your life. In Colorado, to get your record sealed or expunged, unless it is a juvenile case, you have to get the entire case dismissed either through the DA or through a successful completion of a deferred judgement sentence. It is very important to have an attorney help you to evaluate all the nuances in your criminal defense case.
If you are pitted against Michael Jordan with only one ball to throw into the hoop, do you think you will win on your own? In a criminal case, you are fighting against a highly experienced and knowledgeable and well-trained District Attorney. You need experience and knowledge on your side. Whether or not to accept a plea bargain is your choice. Some plea bargains may look attractive but if you are innocent, it may be the worst thing you could do.
