I don't know about that. If it was the same kind of situation, where you were obviously NOT a gang member and didn't have the gun because you were up to no good, they might offer you the 60-day plea deal too. Kind of their way of getting around the mandatory sentence when they can see it doesn't fit the circumstances. Not to mention it's all the more likely since every DA's office I've ever heard of is facing a budget shortage and can't take every case to trial. That makes the chances all the better of getting an offer like that for you or any other non-violent offender.
