are deals offered by the DA indicative of what the outcome will be? For example if the DA offers felony probation, and the deal is rejected, could it be dropped to misdemeanor?

Most times, the offer given is the offer that will stand unless your attorney can negotiate a better offer. Many times it is a starting point. Your attorney can tell you what the circumstances are better than a long distance consultation like me. If your attorney does not give you the information you need or get you the offer you want, you can look for a local lawyer to help.

Sometimes the offer is an indication that the DA thinks he has a bad case but you can never be sure. If you turn down felony probation, you still may be offered a misdemeanor.
