Prosecutorial Misconduct & Developing New Strategies to Fight It

Feedback form is now closed.
Prosecutorial misconduct leads to countless wrongful convictions, unfair trials, and unjust plea bargains. But defense attorneys and accused folks often feel completely powerless to effectively defend against prosecutorial power. Outside of courtrooms and oppressed communities, there's very little public attention or knowledge regarding the incredible power that prosecutors hold and the way their decision-making can impact people's lives. Media rarely report on the issue and District Attorney candidates are rarely even asked about the issue of prosecutorial misconduct as something important to their job. This presentation will discuss some of the work that we are doing and explore the following topics:
  • How can we work inside and outside court structures to effectively challenge prosecutorial misconduct?
  • How can we bring what I call ""courtroom knowledge"" of this problem to the public? 
  • Where can complaints be effectively raised about this misconduct?"

This session will not be recorded.
