In our practice, we find that half our cases are set for trial, but out of those, only about one fifth goes through a trial. We frequently show prosecutors we are willing to fight the case, and that we are not there to strike a deal, plea bargain, or plead guilty to some charge. On the day of trial, when the prosecutor has to bring in witnesses to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt to a unanimous jury, at that point, we usually get a dismissal of the charge, or the charge is reduced to a minor offense. Of course, our client has to be willing to accept this charge, and deferred adjudication may be sealed from their records for minor offenses like misdemeanors, or Class C ticket level offenses. Some Class C ticket level probations may even be able to be expunged.
