CRAZY to me.
But he told me to tell my boyfriend not to take any deals and keep his mouth shut.
I ran it by him and he told me he already planned to not take any deals more than 3 years.

What happens when they turn down a deal? How many more times is the prosecuter going to come at him with more deals? Or is it not common to get offered more than one?
I'm afraid if he turns down the first one then he will go to trial and get the book thrown at him.
From personal experience with my husband he was offered 3 and took the last one. They told him on the last one that that was their last offer and would proceed to trial. But like others stated every case and state and town is different.
