If received a plea offer from the prosecutor but non completely satisfied with it prior to a change of plea what can a attorney do
If you have an experienced federal criminal defense attorney, discuss your concerns with your attorney. He or she is in the best position to offer appropriate guidance and advice. You have the exclusive right to decide upon whether or not a guilty plea is in your best interests. With that said, do NOT rely upon the input of others who do not have all of the necessary information. Follow your attorney's advice or hire another attorney. This is NOT the time for uninformed second opinions. Good luck.
You and your attorney can attempt to renegotiate the parts that you don't like. Or you can reject it and go to trial. Ultimately, it is up to the defendant whether the benefits of the deal outweigh the drawbacks.
