Although criminal defendants have the right to a jury trial, many defendants feel pressured—often by their own criminal defense attorneys—to accept a plea bargain in South Dakota. In many cases, this happens simply because it saves time and money for the attorneys involved, while the best interests of the defendant are pushed aside. 

You shouldn’t feel pressured to accept a plea bargain, especially when you’re not even sure what accepting the agreement means for you or what other options you can potentially pursue. However, when you work with Zimmer, Duncan, and Cole, LLP, on a criminal matter, you can rest assured that:

  • Your attorney will clearly explain all of the options available to you. It’s impossible to make the right decision if you don’t understand all of your potential options and the pros and cons of each.
  • Your attorney will not pressure you to accept a plea bargain. Our attorneys will not pressure our clients to take the “short cut” option of a plea bargain just to save time and money. We are not afraid to build a strong defense and go to trial for our clients. 
  • The choice is entirely up to you. Even though your attorney will provide guidance, explain your rights, and answer your questions, how you choose to proceed is always up to you.
