Description

Designed to assist in the prevention of abuses of the prosecutor's office, Prosecutorial Misconduct establishes systematic guidelines on prosecutorial behavior, citing thousands of precedential cases, and standards of legal and ethical conduct. Containing an extensive discussion of the DeShaney case, the text anticipates possible abuses and available sanctions. It forms a critical handbook for prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges. Topics include:

  • Investigative misconduct
  • Prosecutorial misconduct in the grand jury
  • Abuse of process
  • Abuse of the charging function: selective, vindictive, and demagogic prosecution suppression of evidence
  • The prosecutor and the media
  • Misconduct in the plea bargaining process
  • Delay
  • Misconduct in the presentation of evidence
  • Forensic misconduct
  • Prosecutorial-provoked mistrials and double jeopardy
  • Misconduct at sentencing
  • Sanctions for misconduct

This handbook provides all the tools for bringing or defending a charge of prosecutorial misconduct.
