Potrebujem britský (to najlepšie) alebo americký ekvivalent, agreement on guilt and punishement je československý kalk, aj keď som ho našiel na právnických stránkach (českých a slovenských, ako inak).

plea agreement/plea bargain
Explanation:
Plea-bargaining is a process whereby a defendant agrees to plead guilty to a lesser offence. In England and Wales plea-bargaining is carried out on an informal basis and may occur where a defendant agrees to give evidence against a co-defendant or where it is likely to be difficult to prove a more serious offence.
