Episode 69: An Unjust Bargain

In America, it is a fantasy to believe that people accused of a crime will have their case decided by a jury of their peers. The reality is that most convictions are achieved through plea bargains controlled by prosecutors. Is there a way to unwind this broken system of fast-tracked convictions? Christopher Wright Durocher speaks with Dan Canon, author of the book Pleading Out: How Plea Bargaining Creates a Permanent Criminal Class, about the unjust practice of plea bargaining and how we fix it.

Episode Host: Christopher Wright Durocher, Vice President of Policy and Program

Episode Guest: Dan Canon, Author of "Pleading Out"
