Why plead guilty to a federal offense if you're innocent?

Recently a curious phenomenon has risen to the attention U.S. public. Why people are guilty of crimes then profess their innocence? Or, to put it another way, why a person is convicted a crime he did not commit?

Several bankers from England recently pleaded guilty to one count Federal United States and were sentenced to prison. All bankers plead guilty and not go to trial. Under his plea agreement that allowed them to serve their sentences in prison in England. Why is this issue on a case?

None of the bankers agreed a crime has been committed. Currently, they argue that the only reason for which he pleaded guilty to avoid the risk of going to trial and facing a long prison sentence in the United States. The press in England in attention to this matter and so we did.

In Another case that has received little press attention, an official has tried to plead guilty to a crime. I do not want to go on trial for fear of receiving a custodial long prison term. The judge did not accept his plea. This man came into the yard waiting to be sentenced to prison. It been accused of a crime he did not believe he committed. I knew there was little chance of being paid in the current context. He knew that prosecutors had no concern whether they could be innocent. And certainly do not want to risk a prison sentence who ruined his life. Therefore, he went to court to plead guilty. The judge rejected his plea agreement, when he admitted he does not believe it has committed a crime.

So this poor guy will now have to stand trial in circumstances where their chances of winning are almost nonexistent, in a system that is more frightening for longer sentences for those who go to trial.

Statistics on the percentage of persons charged with a federal crime just to spend time in prison are overwhelming. Over 90% of all persons accused of a crime end of federal prisoners. Almost everyone who loses is going to trial. And over 80% of everyone convicted of a federal crime of spend time in jail. The figures are alarming.

Even more impressive is the risk of long prison sentences. And that's true or not, the belief is that courts issue higher penalties on those who go to trial rather than accept a deal through.

Under the federal system, one of the most important factors determining the length of imprisonment is the amount of money question. When drugs are not mandatory minimum sentences, usually over 10 years. In case of money – business cases for investment, anything involving property – does not take much money to send long sentences and control requirements beyond a doubt. the question does not apply not determine the amount of money involved in a crime.

For these reasons, reasonable people agreed to plead guilty a crime he did not commit. The risks of a trial, the risk that the court may conclude that his alleged crime involving large amounts money, are too large.

The conclusion is that, if charged with a federal crime, is likely to go in prison. Guilt or innocence are luxuries. If you have been charged with a federal crime, your first thought should not be you'll beat you because you are not guilty. And God forbid, if you're guilty, you should not risk going trial. Your first thought should be how to keep his prison sentence to an absolute minimum. There remains the question of guilt or innocence of the university. Make sure that his sentence is short enough that you can pick up the pieces when they are released.

Do you know of any good books recently published true crime?

being a big fan of true crime genre, im application, nobody not have any suggestions for a new reading? I feel like I've read them all or reject it because I was not interested in history specific. I read the news that are exceptionally good, thanks? guys I'm surprised I have not read any of your suggestions yet! the difficulty check them all.

Not sure if that's what you want, but Jodi Picoult is a brilliant author who writes on various crimes and controversial issues. She writes about the death penalty, murder, etc and converts them into stories. Mostly do not know the overall accuracy to the last page. I would say Perfect Match, which is my favorite so far. He is a child who is raped and the mother of the struggle to find his murderer and evil. The Pact is good too. It is the story of a teenager who was murdered or committed suicide Etihad. You really can not find the real answer to the final. Anyway, happy reading!
