America;4/11/1970, Vol. 122 Issue 14, p390
The article focuses on the guilty plea application on the case of Boykin v. Alabama. It suggests that a more reasoned approach to the use of guilty plea will arise in the criminal justice administration in America. It mentions that four members of the court were dismayed with the failure of the plea-receiving judge to examine the contexts around the guilty plea on the case. It adds that elementary protections in a case will fail if the past court decisions will be the bases.
