Grossman on Plea Bargaining

Grossman Steven P. Grossman  (University of Baltimore - School of Law) has posted An Honest Approach to Plea Bargaining (American Journl of Trial Advocacy, Vol. 29, No. 1, 2005) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

In this Article, the author argues that differential sentencing of criminal defendants who plead guilty and those who go to trial is, primarily, a punishment for the defendant exercising the right to trial. The proposed solution requires an analysis of the differential sentencing motivation in light of the benefit to society and the drawbacks inherent in the plea bargaining system.
