What is a plea bargain or plea negotiation?

When Virginia residents are charged with a crime they may anticipate that their criminal law experience will be limited to defending themselves against their pending charges. While in some cases defendants choose to go to trial and have their sides of their cases heard by judges and juries, in other cases defendants and their criminal defense attorneys choose to engage in plea negotiations to mitigate the sanctions pending against the defendants and to speed up the process of coming to resolutions in their cases.

Two sides to an alleged homicide will be heard at trial

In 2007, a mother of three in Virginia disappeared and was not found until six weeks later. Her body was discovered in a park and after evaluation medical examiners determined that she died from a combination of drugs and alcohol in her system and that she had suffered blunt force trauma to her head. Law enforcement officials later charged her boyfriend with first-degree murder. The boyfriend claims that the woman died from an accidental overdose.
