Pittsburgh Criminal Plea Agreements
In Pennsylvania, more than 90 percent of criminal cases are resolved by plea agreements.
If you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony crime, it is likely that at some point during your criminal case the district attorney will offer a plea agreement to resolve the case without need for a trial.
Typical plea agreements involve the prosecutor withdrawing a charge if you voluntarily plead guilty to a lesser offense.
Such agreements may also include sentencing recommendations to the judge for probation only.
It should be noted that the judge makes the final decision about whether to accept a plea agreement.

Domestic Violence Plea Agreements
At Spivak Law Firm, we handle all family law and criminal defense cases with a special focus on child custody and domestic violence. Typical domestic violence offenses include: assault, harassment, stalking, terroristic threats, reckless endangerment, and endangering the welfare of children (EWOC).
Many domestic violence cases are resolved before a magistrate without need to proceed to the Court of Common Pleas. Typical plea agreements for defendants charged with simple assault and terroristic threats include: reducing the misdemeanor charges to a low-level summary offense if the defendant completes an anger-management or batterers-intervention course.
