The Center for Prosecutor Integrity is working to preserve the presumption of innocence, assure equal treatment under law, and bring an end to wrongful convictions.
CPI, a project of SAVE, commissioned a survey to gauge confidence in our nation’s legal system. The results are shocking. Then again, you might not be surprised.
- 43% say prosecutor misconduct is widespread.
- 74% say prosecutors who commit misconduct are almost never punished.
- 67% think the presumption of innocence is becoming lost in our nation’s legal system
Let’s turn this around. Contact your state lawmakers and ask them to support Conviction Integrity Units, Innocence Commissions, open-discovery files, mandatory reporting, and qualified immunity.
