Should I Enter a Plea? 

According to the Bureau of Justice (BOJ) statistics, 90-95% of federal and state criminal cases in the United States are resolved through plea bargaining. In many cases, criminal defendants accept plea offers without an understanding that it has the same impact on their criminal record as being found guilty by a jury. 

Prosecutors prefer to dispose of cases with pleas because the resources to bring matters to trial are limited. In addition, convictions look good on a prosecutor's record.
