Should I ask the prosecution not to do jail time? Posted on May 03, 2011
I was charged with a class 2 felony theft that took place two years ago over a one year period. Plea bargain I received is for class 6, full restitution 34k, 90 days jail with work release and 1 year probation. Can I ask prosecution to consider no jail in plea bargain so I can take care of my sick wife (on FMLA) and two kids? This is a first offense no criminal record at all and a very stupid mistake I made to help support my family. And how do I request just the probation without upsetting the prosecution to pull the plea offer altogether?
