In legal terms, a plea is simply an answer to a claim made by someone in a criminal case under common law using the adversarial system . Colloquially, a plea has come to mean the assertion by a defendant at arraignment , or otherwise in response to a criminal charge , whether that person pleaded guilty , not guilty, no contest or (in the United States) Alford plea .

The concept of the plea is one of the major differences between criminal procedure under common law and procedure under the civil law system. Under common law, a plea of guilty by the defendant waives trial of the charged offences and the defendant may be sentenced immediately. This produces a system known under American law as plea bargaining .

In civil law jurisdictions, there is generally no concept of a plea of guilty. A confession by the defendant is treated like any other piece of evidence, and a full confession does not prevent a full trial from occurring or relieve the plaintiff from its duty of presenting a case to the trial court.

An Alford plea (also called a Kennedy plea in West Virginia, [1] an Alford guilty plea , [2] [3] [4] and the Alford doctrine [5] [6] [7] ) in United States law is a guilty plea in criminal court , [8] [9] [10] whereby a defendant in a criminal case does not admit to the criminal act and asserts innocence . [11] [12] [13] In entering an Alford plea, the defendant admits that the evidence the prosecution has would be likely to persuade a judge or jury to find the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt . [5] [14] [15] [16] [17]

The Alford guilty plea is named after the United States Supreme Court case of North Carolina v. Alford (1970). [10] [12] Henry Alford had been indicted on a charge of first-degree murder in 1963. [18] Evidence in the case included testimony from witnesses that Alford had said, after the victim's death, that he had killed the individual. [18] Court testimony showed that Alford and the victim had argued at the victim's house. [18] Alford left the house, and afterwards the victim received a fatal gunshot wound when he opened the door responding to a knock. [18]

Defendants can take advantage of the ability to use the Alford guilty plea, by admitting there is enough evidence to convict them of a higher crime, while at the same time pleading guilty to a lesser charge. [26] Defendants usually enter an Alford guilty plea if they want to avoid a possible worse sentence were they to lose the case against them at trial. [13] It affords defendants the ability to accept a plea bargain , while maintaining innocence. [27]

It would be satisfying to celebrate the peace deal signed in South Sudan as an end to the warfare that has been the lot of the land's 12 million people for most of the past 60 years, including the extraordinarily cruel civil conflict that has ravaged the country since independence in July 2011. But at least eight cease- fires have collapsed since civil war erupted in December 2013, some within hours of being signed, and both sides have already accused each other of continuing attacks. Only continued pressure by the United Nations and the United States on the South Sudanese leaders will give the peace any chance.

This is not a problem that the United States can sidestep. Uniquely among African nations, South Sudan owes its existence largely to Washington, starting with the George W. Bush administration. But it did not take long after independence for South Sudan's president, Salva Kiir, to go to war against his vice president, Riek Machar, dragging their different ethnic groups and their foreign supporters into a vicious struggle that has inflicted rape, the slaughter of children and other terrible crimes on civilians.

On his trip to East Africa in late July, President Obama gathered leaders of South Sudan's neighbors for a meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, at which they agreed to threaten the warring leaders with international sanctions if they did not agree to a peace agreement by Aug. …
