Can a judge go against the prosecutor sentanceing?

Well it depends on what the plea agreement calls for whether the judge has discretion or not. Also it’s important to know what your prior record is.
Your personal situation could possibly qualify for home arrest or perhaps community service to replace jail. A lawyer could try to negotiate for you with the prosecutor to see about saving from jail.
The good news is that you are going to given probation not jail.
