Punishment without Trial: Why Plea Bargaining is a Bad Deal
When Americans think of the criminal justice system, they picture a trial. The right to a trial by jury is supposed to undergird our entire justice system – but that bedrock constitutional right has all but disappeared thanks to plea bargaining. In 2018, more than 97 percent of defendants pleaded guilty. In her latest book, Punishment Without Trial: Why Plea Bargaining is a Bad Deal, Professor Carissa Byrne Hessick makes the case against plea bargaining and illustrates why we need to fix it if we ever hope to achieve lasting criminal justice reform. Please join us for a panel discussion of this important topic with Professor Hessick, Professor Ric Simmons and Ohio Supreme Court Justice Michael Donnelly.
