The process limits the amount of offenders in court and incarcerated at any given time. The benefit of this model is it prevents the criminal justice system from becoming backed up. A common misconception of the funnel process is that it lets criminals off, however, this is not true, most cases are often dismissed or pleas are bargained for due to lack of evidence.
