Being charged with a federal crime can put you in a pretty bad situation. You will likely experience a lot of uncertainty about your future and what it entails. When you begin to create a defense to the federal crimes charges, you will likely consider looking into plea bargains. Plea bargains offer the following advantages.
It is an unfortunate reality that not everyone who is criminally prosecuted actually intends to commit a crime. Under certain circumstances it is possible the accused could end up facing criminal consequences because of the position he or she is placed in by others. A man recently represented by attorney Matthew Mankey knows this all too well.
I am writing this blog about the Wetterling case in response to the many questions I have received following the recent turn of events. In particular, many have expressed their belief that the plea agreement reached with the man-who admitted to abducting, sexually assaulting and killing, 11-year-old Jacob Wetterling, in 1989-is not severe enough.
