    One third off is all you can get? The prosecution has no latitude? Here in the US, the prosecution can pretty much decide on any plea deal they want. Hence there's massive incentive to plead guilty and make a deal.

    The view here is that it's not really the prosecution who should make these decisions (although that's perhaps an over simplification). It's up to the Court. I think there's a sense of looking at the US criminal justice system with a bit of horror actually.

    Ah I see. I can understand that view I suppose but I would argue that since it's the prosecution that has the burden of making the case, they should also have the latitude on plea deals. If they overstep their power and come up with a vastly unfair deal, the judge can always reject it. That preservers a system of checks and balances.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
