christopher 6a

You go to work. You come home to find Christopher went out while you were at work, stabbed a woman and stole her car, and has been arrested. The evidence is substantial, and the prosecutors offer a plea deal that if approved by a judge, would likely put Christopher behind bars for seven to eleven years. 

Do you counsel him to

plead guilty (and definitely go to jail)                                                        OR      go through a regular trial (pleading not guilty by reason of insanity)?
