    Default What is a Plea Deal

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York

    I recently posted a thread regarding a domstic violence case I am involved in. I spoke with the DA last week, and they said they will offer my fiance a plea deal, and rewrite the statement as there were many false details, most included by the ADA, I believe they were misunderstandings. In any case, my fiance's court appearance is tomorrow. I have been frantic trying to get intouch with th DA, but to no avail. I want to know:

    1) If I can go to the appearance tomorrow. There is a temporary order of protection and it states "it is further ordered that this order of protection shall remain in effect intil 3/18/09". Does this means it ends on 3/18 or ends on 3/19? I am not clear on that.

    2) What is a plea deal, and what does it involve? Does it mean he will go to anger management or community service?

    Thank you.

    Until 3/18 is inclusive of 3/18; but that's not to say you can't go to a court hearing. Talk to the prosecutor.

    A plea bargain is when the defendant agrees to plead guilty in exchange for, typically, a reduced charge or a reduced sentence. The prosecutor can tell you what's being offered.
