When someone is charged with a DUI and there is no viable defense to the charge a skilled DUI defense attorney will seek a DUI plea bargain from the Commonwealth that will put the client in the best situation given the circumstances.
A DUI plea bargain is an agreement between the Commonwealth and the Defendant, that the Defendant will plead guilty and be sentenced (subject to the Court’s approval) in a certain manner.
During this time, it is important to have a DUI lawyer by your side in order to effectively negotiate the DUI plea bargain with the Commonwealth.
A diligent lawyer will attempt to negotiate for less prison time, a diversionary or intermediate punishment, or even in some cases a lower “tier” offense. (Go here to read about the different tier offenses in Pennsylvania) This type of negotiating may save the accused jail time, fines, and license suspensions.
