Plea Agreement

A case may be disposed of without a trial through a plea agreement or the diversion program.

The City Prosecutor cannot initiate plea negotiations, and in fact has no obligation to discuss your case.

Plea agreements are made between the defendant and/or the attorney hired for the case and the Prosecutor.

The Judge is not bound by the plea agreement and may reject any or all of the negotiated agreement.

Remember: plea agreements and diversions are done at the discretion of the City of Olathe's Prosecutor's Office. Both are a privilege, not a right.
