    Many years ago I was assigned to a county that simply lacked enough courts to try all their cases. As a result, the performance evaluation of each Deputy DA was dependent on the percentage of cases they gave initial filings on that actually resulted in convictions. Consequently, you could only get a filing if your case was a slam dunk.
    Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

      so when a good case comes along the DPA does even think about taking it to trial or NEGOTIATING A better deal for the community...instead they want to move it off their table.....and they drop all the enhancment instead of FORCING the defense attorney to work.
      Well, obviously I can't speak to your individual situation. If the prosecutors are not even looking at cases to determine which ones are best pursuing and which should be dropped or pled out, then that's wrong.
