A proffer agreement is basically a deal between someone under investigation for a crime and prosecutors. It lets the person tell prosecutors information about the crime with some protection that what they say won’t be used against them later. The idea is to give prosecutors useful info and to let the person show they want to cooperate, in hopes of getting a better deal down the road.Proffer agreements can be tricky though.

Their lawyer is present too.They have to give up info about their own role in the crime and sometimes others involved.

An experienced criminal defense lawyer is essential to protect the defendant’s rights, negotiate favorable terms, and advise if a proffer agreement is advisable or not.With proper guidance, some defendants can gain immense benefits from proffering.
