Legal Question

Asked on: 12/10/10, 7:27 am

My wife is charged with "possession of cannabis 20 grams or less" , however the substance they seized is actually tobacco!, for some reason the her lawyer wants to plea bargain with the prosecutor to have the charge reduced to possession of paraphernalia, which he believes will get her 6 months probation.

We can't understand this, can anyone anyone explain why the lawyer would want to do this?

I'm no legal expert, but I would have thought this would be the perfect case for a defense lawyer to take to trial, knowing that the prosecution's key price of evidence is worthless!!
