Defendant Accepts Plea Bargain

After being charged with even one let alone with multiple criminal offenses in Nebraska, defendants often and understandably start to assess their options for how to defend themselves. Some of the time, a defense may focus on proving a person's innocence. In other cases, it may focus on achieving an agreement with a prosecution team so that a different set of charges is faced that carries with them a reduced set of penalties.

One man who was involved in a case heard in Hall County is said to have recently reached such a deal. The man was accused of shooting and injuring a woman last autumn and as a result had been charged with numerous crimes. The original list of crimes included attempted second degree murder, first degree assault, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and use of a firearm to commit a felony.

In the end, the man's plea agreement found him entering a no contest plea only to the charge of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. No other charges will be faced in this case going forward. It is not clear what the sentence for this offense will be but one would expect it may be significantly less severe that what he may have faced for all of the original charges.

Defendants in Nebraska might walk to discuss their cases with an attorney to learn how they may have more options that they might originally believe.
