These are the grim statistics: if you are indicted, you have a 99% chance of seeing prison.
96% of all criminal cases are settled with plea deals.
1% of those that go to trial end in an acquittal.
My question is: is anyone right 99% of the time? (The actual statistic is 99.6%) Are prosecutors really right that often? If so, why is there so much inconsistent, illogical, and flat-out wrongness everywhere else in government?
