Conclusion. Three criminal cases in Boston's Superior Court are followed. Two of the cases involve deaths, and all three involve plea bargaining. In one case, a mother is accused of hitting her children. A child died in another. The defendant: his teenage baby-sitter. And in the third case, two brothers are on trial for killing a man in a South Boston bar. If they plea-bargain, one would get seven years, the other 18. If they don't, both could get life.
