Arguments are widespread in the criminal justice system, but rarely acclaimed. Plea`s agreements are boring because they are little less than a victory for all concerned. Prosecutors refuse to offer authorized criminals easier sentences than those authorized by law. Similarly, most accused are not very enthusiastic about the prospect of openly admitting criminal behaviour without the benefit of a trial. Despite the parties` reservations, oral arguments resolve approximately nine out of ten criminal cases. This figure has prompted many observers to question the adequacy of oral arguments. The Japanese system, officially known as the “system of consultation and mutual agreement” (協議-制度, kyogi-goi seido), advocates for the prosecution of organized crime, violations of competition law and economic crimes such as securities law violations. The prosecutor, the accused and the defence counsel each sign a written agreement that must be immediately admitted into evidence in a public court.  There is of course a difference between crushing members if you refuse to confess, or an additional year`s imprisonment if you refuse to confess, but the difference is graduated, not friendly.
Advocacy and torture are a constraint. Like the Europeans of the Middle Ages, the Americans set up a system of procedure that was condemned without adjudication.  The Federal Code of Criminal Procedure provides for two main types of pleas. An agreement of 11 (c) (1) (B) does not bind the court; the prosecutor`s recommendation is merely advisory and the accused cannot withdraw his plea if the court decides to impose a sentence other than that provided for by the agreement. However, an agreement of 11 (c) (1) (C) binds the court as soon as the court accepts the agreement. Where such an agreement is proposed, the Tribunal may reject it if it does not agree with the proposed judgment, since the defendant has the opportunity, in this case, to withdraw his means.  Arguments are so common in California Superior Courts (General Courts) that the California Judicial Council has issued an optional seven-page form (which contains all mandatory advice prescribed by federal and national law) to help prosecutors and defence lawyers reduce these good cases in written pleas.  Although not fully accepted by the Appels Courts, oral arguments began in the early 20th century.
