1. Find an article in a recent newspaper that reports on a plea bargaining arrangement. Briefly summarize the case that is reported, and the circumstances of the plea bargain.
2. Determine from the report if the descriiption best fits charge bargaining, count bargaining or sentencing bargaining.
3. In your opinion, who was best served by the deal and why?
YOUR RESPONSE SHOULD BE NOT LESS THAN ONE NOR MORE THAN TWO PAGES IN LENGTH. INCLUDE A CITATION FROM THE NEWSPAPER (URL, IF FOUND ONLINE).

If either of those two elements are missing or UNCLEAR, you will lose points.
