2. Advantages of plea-bargaining are plea-bargaining leads to the prompt and largely final disposition of most criminal cases. Plea-bargaining reduces the time that pretrial detainees must spend in jail. If they plead guilty to serious charges, they can be moved to prisons with recreational and educational programs instead of enduring the enforced idleness of jails. By disposing of cases more quickly than trials would, plea-bargaining reduces the amount of time that released suspects spend free on bail. Therefore, the public is better protected from crimes that such suspects may commit while on pretrial release. Offenders who plead guilty to serious charges can move more quickly into prison, counseling, training, and education programs designed to rehabilitate offenders. If a defendant accepts a plea than they can know what the punishment will not have to wait for a judge to determine. Disadvantages of plea-bargaining are a suspect may get away with one crime by accepting a guilty plea on a lesser crime.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
