Footnote It is a constitutional right. The Craigslist Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu men seeking men recognize as a principle of fundamental justice the right of accused persons to control the conduct of their defence, Footnote which must be seen to include fundamental decisions about that defence, such as how to plead. However, we now know that factually innocent persons in Canada have sometimes, for a variety of reasons, pleaded guilty to crimes they did not commit.
The phenomenon of false guilty pleas has become an issue of growing concern among experts in Canada and. For this reason, the Subcommittee has chosen to explore this important subject in a new chapter in this report, to raise awareness and to address two key questions:.
The now defunct Law Wy Commission of Canada warned well over a quarter of a century ago that plea bargaining as resolution discussions were then widely known could, in extreme cases, persuade accused persons to plead guilty to offences they did not commit, Footnote and it is now undisputed that it has happened in Canada.

Footnote Among known exonerees in the United States, some research indicates that those who falsely confess are also more than three times more likely to plead guilty to crimes they did not commit in contrast to exonerees who did not falsely confess.
Footnote Growing academic literature also indicates that certain sub-populations, such as young persons, Indigenous persons, and those with cognitive deficits or mental health issues, or who are otherwise marginalized due to factors such as race, poverty or some combination of these factors, may be particularly vulnerable to false confessions and false guilty pleas.

Historically, the best-known wrongful conviction cases in Canada have generally related to homicide or sexual assault.
