Helping You Make The Best Decisions
When you are arrested or facing criminal charges, the consequences can be difficult to deal with. In most situations, before your case faces trial, the prosecutor presents you with a plea agreement. In lieu of going to court, you can agree to the plea deal and your case can be resolved faster.
Depending on what you have been charged with, you may be facing heavy fines, marks on your record or jail time. With these kinds of repercussions endangering your future, it can be difficult to know what is best for you, especially when you are presented with a plea agreement.
Plea Bargains Can Be Deceiving
While it may seem easier and in your best interest to simply take the plea agreement (plead guilty) without consulting a lawyer, it would be the wrong move. You are entitled to an attorney if you are given criminal charges and you should take advantage of that. Attorney Nicholas Dial of Dial Law Office P.C. in West Des Moines, Iowa, can help you make the best decisions.
While the prosecution will present the plea agreement as your best way out, that is not always the case.
