Should I agree to take a breathalyzer test? What happens in Pennsylvania if I do not? VIDEO

Should you agree to a plea bargain in Pennsylvania? It depends, but certainly not until you discuss the matter with an experienced Pennsylvania criminal defense attorney in full and at length. A fundamental question to be asked is, can you take the case to trial and be found not guilty beyond a reasonable doubt? If that is the case, then it may be in your best interest to go to trial with that goal in mind. There certainly could be other considerations involved, but you need to have these discussions with an experienced attorney.

So much is at stake if you plead guilty or if you're charged with a crime in Pennsylvania. You could go to jail or prison. It could affect your life in fundamental other ways. It could affect your career and employment opportunities, your professional license, your family. You need to have a full understanding of the risks in pleading guilty and the potential benefits. It will depend on the specific circumstances at hand. Having an experienced attorney in your corner will help you best understand and make the best decisions moving forward.
