What are advantages and disadvantages of confessing your crime to the authorities?

You may get a lighter sentence if you plead guilty and do not waste the time of a court of law if you expect they will decide you are guilty anyway.
On the other hand if there is reasonable doubt/or a lack of evidence you may be able to get off so you may be wise to keep schtum.
In reality, justice is not about right or wrong but who has the cleverest lawyer.
