To plea or not to plea, that is the question

The courtroom drama is a staple of television and movies. As a result, many people facing criminal charges are under the impression that their case will be resolved through a trial. The fact is that the vast majority of criminal cases are resolved through a plea bargain. In a plea bargain, the prosecution makes some sort of offer to the defendant, such as a dismissal of some charges or a reduction in penalties, in exchange for a guilty plea. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, between 90 and 95 of cases in federal and state courts are resolved through a plea bargain.
