"Plea bargain"

A negotiated settlement of a criminal matter between the defendant and his or her attorney on one side and the prosecutor on the other. It usually results in the defendant pleading guilty to a lesser charge in exchange for a reduction in the severity of the penalty. Courts favor plea bargains because they result in judicial expediency and predictability in the outcome of the matter.
