I came across this yesterday while working on a law review article--an eminent criminal justice scholar (in his final, famous book) citing to military review of pleas as a practice that should be widely adopted:
"Plus, military-style review of guilty pleas would make the pleas that remain more accurate—a large social gain. Such review would also shift power from prosecutors to judges, another social gain." -- William Stuntz, The Collapse of American Criminal Justice 303 (Harvard 2011).
