Courtroom 302: A Year Behind the Scenes in an American Criminal Courthouse

Courtroom 302: A Year Behind the Scenes in an American Criminal Courthouse - Steve Bogira Blah...I couldn't finish it. It was not what I expected. It was dry and lacked any emotion. Most of the book was about the history of the court system in Chicago. While it may be interesting to legal scholars it was not to me. Also, what I did learn about the legal process was depressing. There are few trials anymore. Most of the cases are just plea bargained to make room for the next one. Whatever happened to justice?
