The State vs Garret Ean: Round One – The “Chalking 8”
“As an advocate against taking plea deals from the prosecution, I suppose it was assumed that we would be going “Not Guilty” and forcing a trial. About 95% of cases are pled out before there’s an opportunity for trial, which speaks poorly of the justice system. It means more people are cutting deals to lessen their charges than actually allowing their supposed crime to be reviewed by the system, judged and sentenced. Often those not even guilty of any wrongdoing will still find the plea deal an attractive offer since it eliminates the need to expend time and resources in defending oneself in court.” Garret Ean (www.freeconcord.org).
