Is it worth it to accept a plea bargain if faced with a charge of sexual assault of a child?
Plea bargains can leave defendants with difficult decisions to make. In some cases, a plea bargain may be able to significantly reduce penalties or even charges, possibly allowing a defendant to avoid jail time. However, these bargains may not be worth it in other instances. As accepting a plea bargain will vary in its benefits or drawbacks depending on each person’s unique situation, it is best to discuss this option with a knowledgeable legal professional before proceeding.
