On “Jury Expected To Render Guilty Verdict:” How much longer before it will become “Sentence First, Verdict Later”?

(With kudos to Lewis Carroll.)

‘ How much longer before it will become “Sentence First, Verdict Later”?’

“you have to vote for the law before you know what’s in it” comes to mind…
Or the age old “he would not have been arrested if he’d not done something wrong”, making every arrested person automatically guilty.
This is already the case with traffic tickets, where appeal is only possible after paying the fine, an act that is an implicit admission of guilt, thereby making the appeal pointless.
