Is The Plea Offer Off The Table After A DUI Conviction In California?
Attorney Myles Berman explains that once an offer is rejected and the case goes to trial, the only offer that stands is the one the prosecution may make during trial. Oftentimes, the prosecution’s offer is the same as a sentence that a judge would give at the conclusion of a trial. A defendant might receive a better sentence by taking a case to trial while on the other hand, taking a case to trial could result in a worse sentence for the defendant. It’s very important for a DUI defendant to know all of their options prior to a trial. During the first consultation, I discuss with my clients the possible outcomes and ramifications of that charge.
For example, some people do not realize that professional state licenses can be impacted by a DUI conviction. In addition, not everyone realizes that a DUI conviction can severely impact one’s ability to obtain US citizenship. We will also discuss some of the factors that are necessary in order to get a jury to find the defendant not guilty as well as what the testimony would look like. Since there is a whole host of issues that need to be discussed, I have multiple conversations with my clients during the course of representation. By the time a case actually goes to trial, our clients are very well educated and feel very comfortable with the trial scenario. Contact Top Gun DUI Defense attorney Myles L.
