Have a Plan: Your Future is
Too Important to Rush!
You may be tempted to agree to a plea offer from the prosecution before consulting an attorney, simply to resolve a stressful situation and put it behind you. But be warned that this quick decision may come back to haunt you when you find yourself faced with mandatory jail time, lengthy probation or parole, expensive and time-consuming classes or therapy, and a criminal record that may follow you all your life. Resist the temptation to act quickly!
Prosecutors will often extend an offer that seems reasonable on the surface but will later subject you to a myriad of unforeseen consequences. Take the time to talk to an attorney, understand your rights and the consequences facing you, and only then make an informed decision on how to move forward.
