Will accepting a plea deal keep this off my record?

My court date is coming up and the DA told me I should take a plea bargain and testify against my dealer and does that mean I'll still have a clean record after all this is over?

    Probably not. Accepting a plea means you are pleading to something. What is it the prosecutor is asking you to plead to?

    If you accept a plea, you are pleading guilty to something and will have a criminal record based upon you plea. If you have not done so already, hire an attorney to represent you.

    If the plea bargain you are entering means that you are getting convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, then no. In certain circumstances immunity can be offered where the prosecutor will not move forward with prosecution in exchange for information or testimony. That does not sound like it is the case here. You need a criminal defense attorney to defend you. Don't let the D.A. talk you into something that you don't understand.
