plea bargaining - Legal Definition
A negotiation between prosecutor and defendant in a criminal case in an attempt
to reach a mutually satisfactory middle ground and, therefore, obviate the need
for a trial. Usually it consists of the defendant’s pleading guilty to a lesser
charge in exchange for a lesser sentence than he might receive had he been
convicted on the original charge(s).
