Plea Bargaining and the Innocent

This link takes you to a story about why people may plead guilty even though they are innocent. 
There are many reasons why a person may plead guilty. The innocence project has been showing that people have been pleading guilty who were in fact innocent and proven so by DNA. Convictions of innocent citizens frequently results from false identification and/or lab corruption.  This is an article written by a judge that details the dangers of innocent people who plead guilty.

As a criminal defense lawyer, it is important to protect citizen's rights. Among the defense lawyer's highest callings is to ensure the protection of the presumption of innocence, fighting for justice and not allowing the state to steam roll over rights.
