WHAT IF” SCENARIOS:
What if you were charged with armed robbery because you gave three of your friends a ride to a local bank, not knowing that they were going to rob it. On arrival, your friends told you they just needed to go in to withdraw some money and told you to wait in your car with the engine on. A couple of minutes later, your friends ran out of the bank with cash in their hands. They told you to quickly drive away but police had already arrived and all of you were placed under arrest. Your public defender told you to plead guilty to second-degree robbery with a prison term of 3 years, and said that if you insisted on going to trial, you could face up to 25 years in prison. You had one prior conviction record for burglary. What would your decision be and 3 reasons why?
Imagine you are the district attorney of your county and are about to face a 20% budget cut in the next fiscal year, which would mean that 20% of your prosecutors would be laid off.

You are forced to choose between prosecuting auto theft or domestic violence cases. Which one would it be and two reasons why?
