Should You Give up and Plead Guilty? Can You Expect Mercy from the Court?

Interviewer: What about people that say I can’t take it anymore?  They’re a month or two in and they say I just want to give up and plead guilty.  What do you say to those people?  Is that a mistake?

Interviewer: Yes.  Do you ever have people say I can’t take it, I can’t sleep, and I just want to get it over with?

Ben Doscher: Yes, yes.  I do.  I do.  I say ultimately that’s your choice and it’s my ethical obligation to tell you when there’s a plea offer, but I’ll tell them whether I think it’s appropriate for them to take it or when I don’t think it is.  Ultimately it’s their choice and they should do what they want.
