Guilty pleas keep wheels of justice turning
The Greenville News has an interesting article in today's paper about the number of guilty pleas in state court. I know that civil jury trials are becoming rarer, but this appears to be the case for the criminal trial too . Only 89 cases out of 6,800 total criminal defendants in 2007 made it to a jury.
