A factor in longer sentencing is the not guilty plea,
Nobody’s talking about longer sentences other than you were talking about conviction rates
Every single case will involve a lawyer telling his client if he think she they should plead guilty, everyone that’s pleads guilty has been told to plead guilty by their lawyer unless they are representing them selves in court, And you say I don’t understand the legal system lol
Also how does the fact that apparently a higher proportion of minority’s refuse to plead guilty prove that lawers don’t advise minority’s to plead guilty in a case where they possibly wouldn’t be advise a white person to plead guilty because that’s lawyer thinks the white person stands a better chance of being found not guilty if he pleaded not guilty?
