Explained by Our Tyler DWI Lawyer
With a plea bargain, the state has a free ride. They don’t have to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt and overcome the presumption of innocence.
The state is always trying to sell a plea. They say, “‘It’s easy! You can do it! It’s cheaper! It’s a quick resolution! We’ll give you probation! You don’t need a lawyer (to make us prove our case and protect your rights)!’”
Yeah, some cases need to work out a plea bargain, but most do not. A plea bargain with probation is only an escape from a situation of bad facts which would result in a guilty verdict.
