Does It Pay to Plead Guilty The accompanying table summarizes randomly selected sample data for San Francisco defendants in burglary cases based on data from Does It Pay to Plead Guilty

Does It Pay to Plead Guilty? The accompanying table summarizes randomly selected sample data for San Francisco defendants in burglary cases (based on data from “Does It Pay to Plead Guilty? Differential Sentencing and the Functioning of the Criminal Courts,” by Brereton and Casper, Law and Society Review, Vol. 16, No. 1). All of the subjects had prior prison sentences. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the sentence (sent to prison or not sent to prison) is independent of the plea. If you were an attorney defending a guilty defendant, would these results suggest that you should encourage a guilty plea?

                                 Guilty Plea                        Not Guilty Plea
Sent to Prison             392                                      58
Not Sent to Prison       564                                     14
