Question ID: 565308
I need to know the number of annual CRIMINAL court cases that GO TO TRIAL in the United States (10 most recent available years) and: 1. How many result in conviction each year? 2. How many result in acquital each year? 3. How many are resolved by a plea bargain AFTER the court trial has begun? 4. How many are withdrawn by the prosecution AFTER the court trial has begun? If you can't find info on the past ten years, I'll be okay with the most recent year available and any previous years you can count. I need to know the source of the information and need it to be defintive: either from the government itself or from a respected professional association or consultancy.

Hi jayschool: I know it doesn't answer your questions *precisely*, but the following table of U.S. District Court statistics (i.e., NOT including state courts) from 1945 - 2003 is pretty interesting. Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics 2003, page 423 URL: http://www.albany.edu/sourcebook/pdf/t522.pdf This source is cited by the U.S. Department of Justice: U.S. Department of Justice · Office of Justice Programs Bureau of Justice Statistics URL: http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/abstract/scjs02.htm I couldn't find a more authoritative study of trial outcomes in the U.S. Search Strategy (on Google): * "department of justice" * "plea bargain" site:.edu * "plea bargain" site:.gov Thanks. websearcher
