"'Sandbagging' & Guilty Plea Offers"
Criminal defense lawyers have been accused of a lot of "stuff." Suborning perjury, playing fast and loose with the truth in court, misleading prosecutors, intimidating prosecution witnesses, etc. There are some rotten apples at the Bar.
But now we're collectively accused of something more astonishing: "intentionally not communicating a plea offer to a defendant in order to 'bank' a better outcome for the defendant if the trial turns out poorly."
