You won't find a website like that...especially something that splits up pleas vs. trial convictions. There are way too many factors to be considered. Every case is different. Every case has a different amount of evidence.

I've read most of your postings on PTO. Instead of letting your anxiety rise and be worried the next couple of months, just live day to day and have your loved one talk to their attorney about concerns.

thanks megan.
my loved ones lawyer has very bad communicating issues. My loved one has been in jail almost three months and his lawyer still hasn't sat down with him. Unfortunately it's court appointed so it's overwhelming having no idea whats going on. The only info we have is what is on the police reports and that's it. We have nothing else. I'm completely in the dark. I've never had any court issues in my whole life so i don't understand anything, IF there were something there to understand.
I'm in the dark and scared. I'm telling my loved one to hold on tight, stand your ground, your not guilty, he wants to give up and take a plea if one does get offered because he's scared to go to trial. But i tell him to hold on, stand your ground. don't give up. Now i'm scared i'm giving him information that could hurt him for the rest of his life. I don't know what to do! am I wrong? should i not tell him that? i'm praying. That's all I can do.

Let him make his own decision. I hate to say it, but this is his life, not yours. What you SHOULD do it just be supportive in whatever his decision may be. You also don't know what information his attorney may get in discovery. Don't put all your faith in police reports. There's so much more to a case.

Megan is right - you CAN'T be the one to make the decision - you aren't facing the time.

Just hang tight. This is something that is and will always remain out of your control.
