Being charged with any crime is a serious matter and should be treated as such. You have a Constitutional right to have the State prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, which is a very high standard of proof. It is your choice to have either a judge or a jury of your peers decide if the State has met its burden.
From felonies all the way down to traffic infractions, there is more at stake than one may realize. Aside from whatever penalties you may incur if you plead or are found guilty, even your arrest will appear on your criminal record and affect many other areas of your life.
If the evidence against you is overwhelming or you simply would rather try to resolve the case without a trial, pleading guilty is always an option. When you plead guilty, you can do so with a negotiated agreement with the prosecutor or by pleading guilty “blind” wherein the judge decides your sentence. Again, there are strategic reasons to plead guilty with or without an agreement.
