plea bargain example?
Plea bargain is deal reached between the judge and the defendant. Can you please give us a real example here for us to comprehend the terms?
Re: plea bargain example?
Actually a plea bargain is reached between the prosecution and the defendant. Usually the court, represented by the judge, accepts the plea bargain, but sometimes it doesn't.

Likewise, the defendant and his/her lawyer are also not sure they can win, that is get an acquittal.
So they agree that the defendant will plead guilty to a lesser charge, such as second-degree murder.
(not a judge, lawyer, or criminal)
