Q: In Georgia drug cases if we file a motion of discovery, does that mean the prosecution can't offer any plea bargains ?
A: No. It does not mean that. You should file for discovery in pretty much every criminal case. The prosecution will generally make a plea offer in almost all cases.

Holly G Chapman agrees with this answer
A: I agree with my colleague.
The prosecution exercises discretion in matters pertaining to plea bargains. There are occasions where the prosecution may take plea deals off the table during specific points of the case.
If you have an attorney, and it sounds as if you do, make sure to ask him or her to explain things to you. If you are in need of an attorney, it is in your best interest to contact one as soon as possible. We are glad to assist you. I wish you well.
