Question and answer
Would you rather spend 1 year in prison or receive 5 years of probation with very severe restrictions? Could you envision a probationary sentence that was more severe than a custodial sentence?
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.

Now while I agree with you that we want the client to feel comfortable knowing they can tell their attorney the whole truth do you think the attorney wants to know the whole truth? Specifically I am asking if you think as an attorney you would ask your client if they were guilty or not?
Weegy: During negotiation, lawyers often forget that they are there to represent the interests of a client, not to engage in a battle of wits with another attorney. [ This gives rise to two common ethical violations: revealing confidential information without permission, and failing to adequately communicate with the client. Rule 1.6 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct prohibits a lawyer from revealing a client confidence unless the client has given informed consent to its disclosure. Yet, lawyers routinely inform the opposing party about facts learned from their clients in order to bolster the strength of their cases, or reveal some damaging piece of information about their clients in order to show that the lawyer is bargaining in good faith. Lawyers also tend to denigrate their clients' positions on some issues or distance themselves from a client's unreasonable demands, as if the lawyer were negotiating on his or her own behalf. All of these are unethica ] (More)

I know that there are some attorneys who don't want to know the whole truth, just the details they need to know. I don't know if that makes them feel better representing a client that could be quilty or what? I also know that the client attorney privileage can be broke if it puts someone's life in danger or danger to the client themselves.
Weegy: The attorney client privilege preserves the confidentiality of communications between an attorney and his client. [ It is based on the premise that clients should be encouraged to be completely honest and open with their attorneys so that the attorney can give the appropriate advice. If those communications were not privileged, clients may be reluctant to be as forthcoming with information for fear of discovery. This could hurt the case tremendously. The law recognizes this potential problem and protects those discussions. Although it is the attorney's responsibility to inform his clients about the privilege, the privilege belongs to the client and can only be waived by the client. It cannot be unilaterally broken by the attorney. It even extends beyond the death of a client. It also extends to employees of the attorney, like his paralegal. The privilege attaches to virtually all communications, both oral and written, made by a client to his attorney during the course of the attorney's representation of the client. It may not shield discussions with that same attorney once that attorney-client relationship ends. It does not attach to every communication made by anyone to an attorney. ] (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)
