Plea Bargaining

Plea bargaining means that a guilty plea is no longer the same as a confession. It is effectively a confession extracted with duress. The inducement to plead guilty should not have greater value than saving the administrative costs of a trial. For example, Omar Khadr was threatened with certain full life imprisonment if he did not plead guilty. That was an offer he could not refuse.
