NEED A PLEA DEAL OR DRUG DIVERSION?
When it comes to the criminal justice system, plea deals and drug diversions are often used to avoid lengthy prison sentences. But what exactly are plea deals and drug diversions? And how can they help you if you’ve been charged with a crime?
Plea deals are agreements between prosecutors and defendants in which the defendant agrees to plead guilty to a lesser charge in exchange for a lighter sentence. For example, if you’re charged with armed robbery, you might agree to plead guilty to a simple robbery for a shorter prison sentence. Plea deals can be beneficial for both parties involved, as they allow the defendant to avoid a more serious charge and the prosecutor to save time and resources by not having to go to trial.
On the other hand, drug diversions are programs that provide treatment for nonviolent offenders instead of sending them to prison. These programs typically involve some form of counseling and drug testing, and they can last anywhere from a few months to a year. Drug diversions can effectively rehabilitate offenders and keep them out of the criminal justice system.
If you’ve been charged with a crime, you may be wondering if a plea deal or drug diversion is right for you. The answer depends on several factors, including the severity of the crime you’re charged with, your criminal history, and whether you’re willing to plead guilty to a lesser charge. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you understand your options and make the best decision for your case.
As an experienced and successful litigator, Attorney Aguirre can provide a strong courtroom defense when appropriate. However, it may be more advantageous to seek a plea deal in some cases. If this is your situation, you can rest assured Attorney Aguirre will stand firm in negotiations with the prosecution to get you a fair and lenient plea deal. Whenever possible, he will try to include formal or informal drug diversion as part of your plea deal, as drug diversion will keep you from having to go to jail. However, even if drug diversion is not an option in your case, he will still work diligently to get you the best possible outcome.
No matter what situation you find yourself in, it is always best to have a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.
