CAP Seminar - Negotiating Plea Agreements

  • 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Negotiating Plea Agreements in the Era of Advisory Sentencing Guidelines 

95% of all criminal cases are resolved by a guilty plea. Michigan prosecutors used the state's mandatory legislative sentencing guidelines as a tool to obtain plea agreements favorable to the prosecution. Not anymore! On July 29, the Michigan Supreme Court decided People v Lockridge, ___ Mich ___ (2015), and rendered the guidelines advisory only. This will change your negotiation strategy. Come learn about Lockridge and how to negotiate plea agreements in this new era.
