Cobbs Agreement Definition

Cobbs agreements are unique to Michigan based on People v Cobbs, 443 Mich 276 (1993). While it is possible to receive a Cobbs agreement on any type of criminal charge, not every judge will give a Cobbs agreement and some judges do not offer them at all. In a Cobbs agreement, a judge is asked to advise the parties before a defendant enters a plea what the appropriate range the sentence would be if the defendant is facing incarceration.
