MANDATORY MINIMUM SENTENCES – WHY SHOULD I CARE?

This article explains it well. “Our criminal justice system is almost exclusively a system of plea bargaining, negotiated behind closed doors with no judicial oversight. The outcome is largely determined by the prosecutor alone” who because of MMS and ability to shape the charges can effectively dictate the sentence. It is one sided, secret, evaporates the presumption of innocence and induces false pleas of guilty. It’s a frightening system to get caught up in – especially if you’re truly innocent.
