Is Plea bargaining ethical If you could take a deal that would swap your prison sentence from 20 to 16 years even if you were guilty would you? What if you and the defense lawyer didn’t know what the evidence was yet. What if the prosecutor said you can either take the deal or you can go away for as long as i can get? These occur in the plea bargaining system.
Plea bargaining can present a dilemma to defence counsel in choosing between vigorously seeking a good deal for their present client or maintaining a good relationship with the prosecutor for the sake of helping future clients. There are few ways to bargain with the prosecuting officers. For both the government and the defendant, the decision to enter into or not to enter into a plea bargain can be based on few things. One of them is the seriousness of the alleged crime.
The first reason Socrates gives for accepting his death sentence is the fact that Athens has provided him with education. (Crito page 15) Although Socrates thinks this is a just reason, Plato would disagree because Socrates could have become corrupted and bad without proper education. According to Plato, Socrates would have the traits of a philosopher king. Socrates loves the truth, hates the false, is moderate and courageous. (The Republic 485a-486b)

From the quote you can first infer that the person is talking about being in a court because a court is one of the few places that peoples life’s change and then it can be narrowed down to a court because the book title is Pleading Guilty, which can be inferred that it has to do with law and the main setting for law is a court. Also from the quote it shows that Mark does not want Bert to be proven innocent, who to Mark he does not think there is a chance that he will be proven innocent because it can be inferred that Mark is confident in the work he has done to prove Bert guilty to the point where he thinks he can make Bert plead guilty with all the evidence against him. The quote relates to the title of the novel because where Bert will plead guilty to is inside a court. Bert pleading guilty is the last reason why the title fits the
Parole is honoring one’s word that an offender will not re-offend. I have mixed views about giving repeat offenders parole. The whole idea of parole is giving a person a second chance after committing a crime and paying for that crime and re-entering society. Everyone deserves a second chance, because sometimes a person could be in the wrong place and the wrong time and get caught up in a certain situation. Because a person who is on parole is getting the chance to serve the remaining time from jail to enter into the world and are able to get a job and pay fines, and still be under supervision of an officer to stay clean from drugs and not to repeat a crime, they should not be able to repeat an offense.
Thus, because relationships cannot be proved true, an attempt is made to prove them false. This is called falsification. For example, instead of proving that a defendant is truly guilty of a crime, a prosecutor attempts to prove with a certain confidence level that the defendant is not innocent of the crime. For example, if there is a 95% confidence level that a defendant is not innocent, then jurors may find the defendant guilty.
Some see the death penalty as the correct punishment for severe crimes such as dealing drugs or murder, but others believe that the death penalty would let these criminals off to easy as they wouldn't have to live the rest of their sentence, or even life, in prison. Listener relevance: this punishment is currently being considered in the united states, included in the White House Opioid Crisis Plan. One of the reasons people want to keep the death penalty is that it’s “the ultimate warning”.
( Gaines pg: 8) This is a perfect example on how the attorney believes Jefferson is guilty in his case because in the end he gave the jury a mental image for a moment to vision Jefferson being guilty and then comparing the relationship on whether it matters to keep this man alive or not. All the evidence the attorney had to present Jefferson’s defense showed how much of a difference it is to be black rather then white in the
Which leaves them with the only option to commit crimes again. He would give judges the power to depart from mandatory minimums laws if they are on the best interest of the law. This is would be very beneficial for us since people make stupid mistakes sometimes and life in prison is way too severe. Also having a person sent to prison cost money, especially if they have serve a life sentence. He would restore voting rights of every non-violent
I do not think that the plea bargain lets someone off easy. While they might receive a lesser change they also are having the fact that they admitted to doing something taken into consideration by the court system when they decide on the punishment. I feel that it equals out in the long run for those who end up taking the plea bargain. In small cases yes the person might get off with just probation, but is probation was something in condensation then the crime could not have been that detrimental. They would not offer something like probation to a deranged murderer if they confessed to killing someone.
I think that the use of bounty hunters to apprehend offenders who did not show up for court just so that the bail bond company can get their money back from the court reminds me of something that I would watch on an old west movie. To me it seems that this should be the job of law enforcement because bounty hunters would be more tempted to break constitutional laws in the process of searching and apprehending suspects because the difference between bounty hunters and law enforcement is that that bounty hunters will not get paid if they do not apprehend the offender, law enforcement will get paid regardless therefore their personal interest will not be involved which will allowed law enforcement to follow everything by the book and be less tempted to break constitutional
Then they are no longer considered white lies. The situation surrounding the lie being told is incredibly important to how “moral” the lie is considered. Back to the case of the murderer, is it more ethical to serve the prison sentence or is it more ethical to stay and take care of the child who has no one else. And how lying about the murder case can benefit the
