About "Plea Bargaining"
This article was written collaboratively by Vance Trefethen, Rob Parks and Chris Jeub.
There are a large number of aspects of the US Federal Court System that lend themselves to reform. One of the major reforms concerns the whole idea of “plea bargaining.” NSDA debaters get to take this issue on squarely. This article is the introductory article for Monument Members in Season 18 for the NSDA January/February debate topic, “Resolved: Plea bargaining ought to be abolished in the United States criminal justice system.”
This article and additional evidence cards were salvaged from the NCFCA policy debate from 2011-2012 school year when they debated criminal justice reform. All the evidence has been updated and links re-checked.
