Explain your answer.
I would rather accept 1 year in prison than 5 years of severe restrictions. I think being patient with in 1 year in prison is easier than waiting for 5 years of different restrictions.

What is prosecutorial discretion and how does it apply?
Weegy: As an elected or appointed official, the prosecutor is the most powerful official in the criminal justice system. [ Prosecutors exercise unfettered discretion, deciding who to charge with a crime, what charges to file, when to drop the charges, whether or not to plea bargain, and how to allocate prosecutorial resources. In jurisdictions where the death penalty is in force, the prosecutor literally decides who should live and who should die by virtue of the charging decision. ] (More)

, I think that prosecutors often plea the very violent and serious cases as well as the lesser ones because of the potential time frame a case can take in coming up with a decision from the judge and jurors. If the prosecutor can get the defendant to do a plea bargain prior to going to trial, it may save the state or government tons of money as well as time in where it may be used for other cases that a plea bargain may not be that firm of an option.
Weegy: Weegy agree on your opinion , to add on this ; For the prosecution, it means saving the time and money involved with going through a trial and getting a conviction against a defendant. For the defendant, it usually boils down to jail time. [ In most cases, a defendant is much more likely to get a less severe sentence by entering a plea than if he decides to go trial and loses. There are two main reasons for this: •In some plea agreements, the prosecution agrees to drop some criminal charges or reduce the level or severity of a crime in exchange for a defendant's guilty plea. For example, a driver accused of driving while intoxicated (DUI) may negotiate a deal to plead guilty to reckless driving, a much less serious offense which carries a less severe penalty •Sometimes the prosecution will agree to a specific sentence and make it part of the plea deal by promising the defendant to "recommend" the sentence to the judge when it comes time for sentencing. For example, the prosecutor may recommend sentence of fewer years in prison than a defendant might face if he goes to trial or gets convicted. The prosecutor may also promise to recommend probation instead of jail time. ] (More)

Weegy: As an elected or appointed official, the prosecutor is the most powerful official in the criminal justice system. [ Prosecutors exercise unfettered discretion, deciding who to charge with a crime, what charges to file, when to drop the charges, whether or not to plea bargain, and how to allocate prosecutorial resources. In jurisdictions where the death penalty is in force, the prosecutor literally decides who should live and who should die by virtue of the charging decision.Charging Once an arrest is made, a prosecutor screens the case to determine if it should be prosecuted or dropped. The decision to prosecute is based on the following factors: The sufficiency of the evidence linking the suspect to the offense. The seriousness of the offense. The size of the court's caseload. The need to conserve prosecutorial resources for more serious cases. The availability of alternatives to formal prosecution. The defendant's culpability (moral blameworthiness). Dropping charges After a prosecutor files a charge, the prosecutor can reduce the charge in exchange for a guilty plea or enter a nolle prosequi (nol. pros.) . A nolle prosequi is a formal statement by a prosecutor declaring that a case is discontinued. Reasons for entering a nol. pros. include insufficient evidence, inadmissible evidence, false accusations, and the trivial nature of some crimes. Plea bargaining Prosecutors also exercise discretion in negotiating pleas with defense counsel. A plea bargain is an agreement in which a prosecutor permits a defendant to plead guilty in exchange for a concession, such as reducing the charges or recommending a lenient sentence. There are advantages of plea bargaining to both the accused and the state. For the accused, it offers the possibilities of a reduced sentence and cheaper legal representation. For the government, it reduces the financial costs of prosecution, improves the efficiency of the courts by having fewer cases go to ... (More)
