Is it possible to strike a plea bargain of a reduce charge for DUI at a ALS hearing with the officer?

Asked almost 3 years ago - Lawrenceville, GA

Or does that have to be done only with the prosecutor on the day of court?
Because several attorney's tell me that they usual try to change the court appearance over to state court from recorder's because they do not usual offer plea bargain's in record court in Lawrenceville. Is that true?

    Answered . You can, but that bargain is not binding on the prosecution in criminal court. They are free to totally ignore the agreement if they want to. However, it is a big help to have the officer's approval on a Reckless when you go into negotiations.
