The concept of plea bargaining is not only a boon helpful for the overburdened judiciary but it renders benefits to many others. Plea bargaining is the most important and most popular as well as most discussed issue in the modern criminal procedure. The phenomenon of plea bargaining is common in the United States, and England & Wales and has become a feature of criminal case disposition in other common law jurisdictions like Australia, Canada, and South Africa as well as in civil law systems like Italy and the Netherland. Plea bargaining is useful to avoid the uncertain outcome of the trial and secure convictions. Although it’s useful and efficient, there are few doubts regarding the constitutional validity of Plea bargaining.
