In the judge system, these 300-400 cases will go to just 5-10 judges, who have a term of 2-4 years in their areas. |
So in order to delay the case (to frustrate the complainers/witnesses) or get outright aquittals, the gang leader has to cultivate nexuses with ONLY 5-10 judges.
He cultivates nexuses with 5-10 judges, and bingo ... he can manage an acquital/delay in 99% cases.
In the Jury System, EACH case goes to 12-15 DIFFERENT Jurors, randomly chosen from the district. |
So to get acquitals in 300-400 cases a year, the gang leader will need to cultivate nexuses with 3000-5000 Jurors a year.
Long delay in Jury Trials are rare as each Jury is given ONLY one case, hearings are from 11am to 4pm on one and only one case, and mostly next date is next day.
so managing acquitals in even 10%-20% cases is next to impossible, much much harder than it is in judge system
