things to consider when copping a plea

Via some recent local news regarding the current LD resolution.

1. In many jurisdictions, a judge can ignore your plea, no matter what the prosecutor promised. It's a recommendation, not a biblical injunction.

2. Sometimes you think you're copping a plea, when you're really not. Just ask serial killer Robert Yates.

3. The justice system might look aside, but victims aren't often as forgiving.
