Prosecutorial Misconduct-A Right According to Some Prosecutors

“Prosecutorial Misconduct-A Right According To Some Prosecutors” by John F. Hays, a Seattle Private Investigator.

My last post was about prosecutorial misconduct and was based on an article by Radley Balco, who writes “The Watch” for the Washington Post. Here’s a followup by the same writer that validates the wording of the title of this post.

When a judge calls a prosecutor on the carpet for misconduct and that prosecutor accuses the judge of bias and asks him to recuse himself from criminal cases in her jurisdiction, something is seriously wrong. Prosecutorial misconduct should be a felony punishable by disbarment and jail time. Bust a few of these arrogant slimeballs and put them in prison with people they’ve convicted and we might see a revival of the quaint concepts of ethics and morality in the criminal justice system.

Here is an article on the topic in The Post and Courier, a Charleston, SC newspaper.

Kudos to South Carolina Supreme Court Justice Donald Beatty; and shame on Solicitor Scarlett Wilson.

 

Do Prosecutors Cheat?

“Do prosecutors Cheat?” by John F Hays, a Seattle Private Investigator.

Do prosecutors cheat? The short answer is yes.

Sometimes prosecutors cheat. Sometimes police cheat. Sometimes judges cheat. Sometimes defense attorneys and defense investigators cheat. Sometimes jurors cheat. When any players in the game of criminal justice cheat, the whole system fails. It fails the defendant and society, as a whole.

This article in “The Atlantic”, by Andrew Cohen and dated March 4, 2014, tells the story of a prosecutor who admitted the prosecution’s failure in a specific case. This sort of cheating happens all the time; but how often do we see the prosecution or any other players in the process own up to their failures? Laura Duffy did the honorable thing. Kudos to her; and heads up to any criminal justice system players who might play fast and loose with the law.

 

Police and Prosecutorial Misconduct-Another Reason to Kill Capital Punishment

Police and Prosecutorial Misconduct-Another Reason to Kill Capital Punishment by John F Hays, a Seattle Private Investigator.

Even if you believe that capital punishment is a moral act, this example of police and prosecutorial misconduct should cause you to question its application. This one is from New York; but it happens all over the country.
