From Prof. Berman at Sentencing Law & Policy.
Should prosecutors be offered bonuses for conducting trials and getting convictions?
SJA to DC: My TC’s don’t have enough court time and experience, so that’s why my recommended deal is so high, if you don’t like it try the case so my TC can get experience?
SJA to TC: I can’t rate you above center of mass, you don’t have enough contested trials under your belt compared to CPT X.
SJA to TC: we need more cases so we can justify our existence, get people and get money.
