Friend charged with 5 felonies. Not guilty of charges. Has 2 witness on side but also 2 witnesses against. Option 1: Go to Trial 60/40 chance of winning if lose trial, definite jail time, probably at least 4-8 yrs, and possibly registry as sex offender Option 2: Plea deal 1 felony count that will be reduced to misdemeanor after probation Jail time possible but at most 6 mths and realistically no jail time I think option 2 is the better choice. Chance of winning the trial but it seems too risky. Problem is pleading to something, it is hard when the person knows they are innocent.
