Plea deals

I didn't get around to posting last week's plea deal numbers. They are lower than the previous week, because there was a jury trial and we only had docket (where we make deals and plead cases) on Monday and Friday.

But here's what we had:

Probation: 6 cases
Jail: 6 cases

So, that means we have disposed of 37 felony cases so far this month. I'll keep updating and we'll see how things go.

1. "Probation" includes regular probation and deferred adjudication. "Jail" includes anything from one day back-time, to life in the penitentiary. It's usually somewhere in between. :)
2. Note that these stats do no take into account probation revocation cases, i.e. where someone already on probation is accused of committing a further offense, and their probation is either continued or ends with a jail sentence. They also don't take into account cases from our court resolved on the "rocket docket" in the magistrate's court.]
