THW abolish the practice of plea bargaining

A plea bargain is any agreement in a criminal case the prosecutor and defendant wherein the defendant agrees to plead guilty a particular charge in return for some concession from the prosecutor. This can involve defendants pleading guilty to less serious offences than those with which they are charged, or agree to plead guilty to the original charge in exchange for a more lenient sentence. The majority of cases in some jurisdictions, e.g. the United States, are settled out of court in plea bargains.
