It would interesting to know the percentage of total cases that make it to trial, and even then, end in a conviction.

I tried digging for just those facts....and apparently they are buried....it will take time.

But, drawing totally from memory; maybe 1/2 of arrests actually make it to court....and another 1/2 of that actually go to trial....and 1/2 of that actually come down with some form (even a hand slap) of punishment are handed down.

I got things to do but I will pursue this further later in the day. This is going to take some web-mining.

Anyone else that wants to help please do. Even if my recollections are totally incorrect I don't care.
