In Defense of Plea Bargaining


Timothy Sandefur


Goldwater Institute


Regulation, Vol. 26, No. 3, pp. 28-31, Fall 2003

Abstract:     
Plea bargaining, like all government activities, is liable to abuse. Yet the mere fact that a process can be abused does not necessarily make that process unconstitutional, or immoral. Plea bargaining is rife with unfair prosecutorial tactics, and it needs reform. But the process itself is not unconstitutional, nor does it violate a defendant's rights.
