Cobbs Plea Definition

A Cobbs Plea allows a defendant to enter a “conditional” plea that can be withdrawn if a judge sentences the defendant outside the terms of the agreement. In other words, a Cobbs Plea is an agreement with a judge for a cap on a potential sentence in exchange for a plea. A judge is free to sentence a defendant below the Cobb’s Plea, but not more unless the defendant is allowed to withdraw their guilty plea. The prosecutor is typically not a party to a Cobbs Plea.
