Plea bargaining is the negotiation process that occurs among defendant, prosecutor, and defense counsel. Its purpose is to provide a mutual agreement of these parties and the disposition of the case. Although plea bargaining is used in all types of cases, it is most suited for less serious crimes as well as cases lacking strong evidence. For example, a prosecutor with a weak case will be much more likely to accept a plea because of the inability to establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
