The Plea (DVD)
90 min.
- Instructional Video
Originally broadcast June 17, 2004 on the PBS Television series Frontline.
Summary:
Examines the prevalence of plea bargaining in the American justice system, and the failures of justice that result when the practice is misused. Nearly 95 percent of all cases resulting in felony convictions never reach a jury, but instead are settled through plea bargains, in which a defendant agrees to plead guilty in exchange for a reduced sentence. Critics contend that the push to resolve cases through plea bargains jeopardizes the constitutional rights of defendants, who may be pressured to admit their guilt whether they are guilty or not.

Writer, producer and director, Ofra Bikel; editor, Karen K.H. Sim; narrator, Will Lyman; camera, Mark Molesworth and Bob Perrin; music, Thomas Rutishauser.
