CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM 2
Plea bargaining can simply be referred to as pre-negotiations between the persecutors
and the defendant where the defendant agrees pleading guilty for the prosecutors to offer them
certain concessions where they drop serious charges. The most common outcome that
surrounds the plea bargaining is that a high number of the offenders never go through a court
trial by pleading guilty and the judge giving them a right judgment.
Where the plea judgments are to be eliminated in the criminal justice system fully, it
means that the criminals are not to be let off from long sentences for turning in their bosses or
co-stealers. The criminals demolish the justice system more often where they get reduced trials
which work in favor of them rather than the fundamental justice needed (Jolley, 1972) .
Elimination of the plea bargaining, therefore, suggests that they will not be out to conduct their
crimes. Criminal cases, therefore, will reduce.
Elimination of plea bargaining in the criminal justice system means that lying will be
discouraged and that justice will be pursued. In plea bargaining, innocent people are denied the
freedom of exercising their rights to a trial to prove their innocence. Juries can sometimes be
unpredictable. No one would wish to spend ten years in prison instead of 2 even knowing they
are innocent and should not even spend a day in prison. Elimination of bargaining plea thus
will ensure that justice to those who are innocent prevails.
On the other hand, elimination of plea bargaining implies that a lot of time, effort as
well as money will be used to get those who are guilty behind bars. This, therefore, will make
the courts to have time to look to other cases (Jost, 1999).
In conclusion, elimination of plea bargaining in criminal justice system could be both
advantageous and disadvantageous. Elimination shows imply that those who are innocent can
now get justice and those who are guilty to serve their sentences fully. On the other hand, its
elimination shows that a lot of time, effort and money may be used for charging and closing
