How Nine Out of Ten Criminal Cases Are Settled
Though it is a seldom-praised tool of the criminal justice system, plea bargain agreements successfully resolve roughly 90 percent of all criminal cases. Plea agreements are often a tool of last resort because they represent something less than a complete victory for either side of a criminal case. Prosecutors are reluctant to offer lighter sentences for the charged offense, and defendants are hesitant to admit guilt and surrender their right to a full trial.
There are various defenses to a claim of liability. For example, if the injured party knew that the activity in which he was engaged when he was injured was dangerous, the other party may assert assumption of the risk, claiming that the injured party bears all the responsibility for his injury. Other defenses are pre-existing condition and intervening causes.
