    Default Re: Plea agreement in Florida

    There is no guarantee that you'll be offered a better plea bargain, or even the same plea bargain, if you turn down a plea offer. I would hope that your husband is working with a criminal defense lawyer, in which case his lawyer can advise him as to whether he should consider any particular plea offer, and the odds of getting a better offer at a later date.
