When you have been accused of a crime and facing time in jail a district attorney may offer a “plea bargain” to avoid taking the case to trial because he may lose the case.
Judges like plea bargains because they move the cases off the court’s busy docket and off their busy calendar. District Attorneys like plea bargains for the same reasons. There are some DA’s that won’t plea bargain on some types of cases.
Accused defendants like plea bargains because they take the uncertainty of conviction and facing time in jail and allow them to be out of jail if they are placed on probation or deferred adjudication.
