So? Your question is...?

This is normal prosecutor procedure to charge everything they think they can prove. That is their job. You never have to take a plea bargain. You are always free to take it to trial, as long as you are willing to risk that. If you lose at trial, you'll be sentenced to the full term provided for each crime. That is why most case are settled with plea bargains and less than 'full" time.

If serious about hiring counsel to help in this, feel free to contact me. Iíll be happy to help fight and get the best outcome possible, using whatever defenses and sympathies there may be.
