Description

News Herald (Panama City, Fla.) reveals how a county court allowed defendents to receive reduced or dropped sentences if they gave a "donation" to law enforcement agencies and charities; in some cases, usually domestic violence, victims had to make the donations if they wanted to drop the charges; the option to make donations was five times more likely to be given if the defendent had money and hired a private attorney, April - December, 1993.
