    Hello Everyone,

    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?

    Regards

    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.

    For example, A caused the death of B. The crown lays a charge of first-degree murder against A.
    But the crown, represented by the prosecutor, is not sure that it can win the case.
    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)
