Plea agreements can be treated as a contrac. In case of plea agreements, generally the defendants plead guilty for a lesser setence/lesser crime so as to avoid a larger trial whereby he can face a harsher sentence. Plea agreements are very popular with the prosecutors as its considered as an amicable way to end the criminal cases.
