Can a person that turns his/herself in and declare themselves guilty request not to have a trial?

Oh, there's a story behind that statement. Cool question, bb!

Does the judge go; "No backsies." ;)

It took amazing courage to own up to it - face the consequences - but to then back down like they've got no agency anymore, is probably worse than not confessing at all.

Actually I'm working on a fanfic. The main character commits a serious crime and turns himself in, but doesn't want a trial because he knows he's guilty and wants to pay for his crime.

I am totally here for it!! Is any of our girls of awesomeness involved? How would that work though? Maybe somethin' akin to Wolverine, or Batman, or the Fugitive. Imprisoned for a time, but ultimately lost to the system on the way to lock up, and changes him name etc to make amends? Someone else confesses to the crime (wanting fame etc) before he does. Or there's a mix up at the labs and the case gets thrown out.

Or he gets recruited for some mission by the CIA that will let him out of his sentence if he goes through with it?
