Pretrial Options & Plea Arrangements

In the majority of domestic crime cases, the state will settle provided they can reach an appropriate agreement. If the case seems weak or lacks merit, it may be dismissed outright, often without court costs being owed. Sometimes, these dismissals are predicated on the defendant remaining out of trouble for a predetermined period of time, completing counseling, completing anger management classes, or some other requirement which both addresses the underlying issues and in some way punishes the defendant. A good attorney can find weaknesses in the case that will allow the defendant to resolve their case amicably without the risks involved in taking the matter to trial.
