The majority of criminal cases in the United States do not make it to trial. Rather, the finality of these cases are often reached through plea negotiations between the prosecutor and the defense. The practice has been considered to be rather controversial because defendants must plead guilty in order to receive reduced sentences. Alternatively, defendants may not receive effective legal representation when their cases are plead out, which may be a violation of our Sixth Amendment rights.

Please answer, for whom does plea bargaining benefit? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this practice? In spite of the numerous backlogged criminal cases in the justice system, should we continue to utilize this practice?

Finally, if you pull additional information from a source (internet, book, article, journal article) to develop your response, please be sure to cite it appropriately in APA format.
