Summary
It is the centerpiece of America's judicial process: the trial by jury system that places a defendant's fate in the hands of a jury of one's peers. But just how many citizens are aware that nearly 95 percent of all criminal cases never reach a jury, but instead are settled through plea bargains? FRONTLINE explores the moral, judicial, and constitutional implications of relying on plea bargains to expedite justice.
