Issler: Admissions made under duress are offered up to maintain the illusion of order in a disorderly system requiring some closure. In no way should a resonably informed person accept such admissions as a confession regarding a crime. The courts have made deals with many innocent or wrongly accused people to avoid a court case that is weak or would result in punishing a victem more than it would the accussed. That's all that happened here. Dr. Guidry was charged and the evidence was obviously not strong enough to ensure the prosecution will win with a jury trial. It's all about politics and pleasing the electorate. Elected officials cannot stick their neck out if they can't win. One day Judges and Prosecutors will not come from the electorate but will come from the academic world and not be subject to the whims of society but adhere to the law.
