John Emshwiller has a fascinating piece titled, "'Benron' Behind Bars" that looks at Ben Glisan Jr's life of cooperation and prison. Although not the focus of this piece, it is interesting to note that the risk and cost of trial weigh heavily in the decision to plea. Glisan, like Martha Stewart realized the value of "getting it over with," and "moving on." But is that the way the justice system is supposed to work?
