This case involves a defendant in the
state of Delaware criminal justice system.

Is a plea bargain invalid if it
doesn't benefit the defendant?

This defendant took a plea for trafficking cocaine and subsequently found out that the
weight was not enough to:

1.) be trafficking
2). sustain a conviction beyond a reasonable doubt.

Are there any situations where a plea bargain can be considered invalid?

The law requires 5 grams or more for a charge of trafficking. The medical examiner/police report states that only 2.7 grams were found.

The defendant claims that his civil rights were voilated by the courts. The defendant was stopped in an automobile, arrested, and subsequently charged with trafficking cocaine:

The defendant claims that he did not give authorization for a search and siezure of the automobile where 2.7 grams of cocaine was found. The officers claim that the search was an "inventory search". The defendant also claims that he was not given the opportunity or sufficient time to call a private firm to tow his automobile.
