Prosecutors hold immense power and they can cause immense harm when they break the rules. The misconduct in these grievances appears to fall within a largely-unaddressed pattern of improper conduct — choices that violate New Yorkers’ constitutional rights. At the time the grievances were filed, none of these prosecutors had received public discipline according to the New York Attorney Detail Report.
The grievances you see below likely represent a fraction of the prosecutorial misconduct that happens as many instances, in our experience, go unreported. With so many cases ending in pleas, the chance that a judge will discover any hidden evidence or misconduct in those cases decreases. We need to have a more accountable New York.
