PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Andrea Harrington said some 95 percent of criminal cases end with plea deals crafted behind closed doors.    When one person gets probation after being caught with pounds of marijuana and guns, while another person is given a two-year mandatory minimum sentence for selling a joint worth of marijuana, it certainly gives people pause.
