Did you know?
A not guilty plea can be used as a criminal defense strategy.
In cases where the defendant is obviously guilty, entering a not guilty plea can help reduce a stiff sentence. Defense lawyers can talk to prosecutors for a plea bargain where they agree to plead guilty in return for reduced charges involving less jail time or even a suspended sentence with probation.
