“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.
