Event Description:
“Who Watches the Prosecutors?“
Not all alleged criminal activity is prosecuted equally. Overwhelmed by cases, prosecuting attorneys must choose which cases to prosecute, But how is this choice made? Do they select complex, drawn-out cases that protect the most citizens or quick cases that are seemingly easy to win? Do they give consideration and preference to cases that bring personal prestige and advancement?
