The Center for Prosecutor Integrity (CPI), a project of SAVE, is working to preserve the presumption of innocence, assure equal treatment under law, and bring an end to wrongful convictions. Today, CPI released their first White Paper: An Epidemic of Prosecutor Misconduct.
Prosecutor misconduct includes charging a suspect with more crimes than warranted, concealing evidence, coercing witnesses, and making misleading statements to the jury. The report shows that prosecutor misconduct is widespread and ingrained in our nation’s criminal justice system.
Visit the CPI website for more information on criminal justice reform.
