re: #370 Dr Lizardo

The plea deal probably came after his motion was denied last week to get the charges dropped. His lawyer probably began working up a plea deal minutes after the motion was denied in order to avoid an even longer sentence that was possible (5 years on the false statements charge).

It saves the prosecutors time and effort of trying to prove this in court, and D’Souza gets certainty of not facing the max sentence.
