It's expensive to plead not guilty which is why many people just plea guilty and take the best they can get. My friend got an incredibly bullshit "care and control over 80" charge that she ended up pleading guilty to because she couldn't afford to fight it especially if she lost. Rich people can fight these BS charges and poor people end up getting screwed, as is intended.
