Really like to hear Rovin Romine's take on how common this type of offer is---as I read the article it is not quite nolo or Alford. What would be the reason for prosecution to offer this specific deal at this point?
I, too await, RR's take. My guess it that given the usual minimal sentences for these types of crimes, the prosecution has to give him something or else he has no incentive. "You don't have to plead guilty" is something.
I realy want RR's take on whether, as the WSJ breathlessly asserts, its really an "unusual" provision.
