Obviously no favoritism

The simple fact is that one of the biggest problems with our criminal justice system today is that DAs and courts will accept a plea down from felony to misdemeanor without batting an eyelash. The worm that burglarized my home (in CA) was allowed to plead guilty to misdemeanor B&E and the felony charge of burglary was then dismissed. Of course, he was apprehended in an occupied dwelling place during hours of darkness, CLASSIC burglary, a felony....and it was the SECOND time he was allowed to do plead guilty to B&E instead.....but the next time he burglarizes a house and fnds a woman or senior citizen home alone and kills them, the DA can claim, "How were we supposed to know?" We need to stop allowing criminals to plead out of felonies, especially when the state has a solid case. DAs need to stop being lazy.
