A plea bargain is an agreement in a criminal case in which a prosecutor and a defendant arrange to settle the case against the defendant. The defendant agrees to pleadguilty or no contest (and often allocute) in exchange for some agreement from the prosecutor as to the punishment. A plea bargain can also include the prosecutor agreeing to charge a lesser crime (also called reducing the charges), and dismissing some of the charges against the defendant.

What do you guys think..........are plea bargains an effective and ethical way to get defendants to admit their crimes or are they a deal with the devil?

why close it dear?
I don't favour such bargains. IMO, this is often how rich / influential people get away with crime Embarrassed I don't understand law much and am not sure the reason why such a provision was made, hence will not say anything with authority :)

dont know much abt law myself..but jus a question...are these under-hand agreements or public agreements?

either way i dont support it cuz it favors the rich and allows them to use their money/influence/connections to get away with crimes. Law should be about giving everyone an equal opportunity to be trialed. wrongdoers should be punished and there shouldnt be exceptions
