CHICAGO TRIBUNE SERIES ON PROSECUTOR CHEATING - January 25, 2005 - The verdict: Dishonor. With impunity, prosecutors across the country have violated their oaths and the law, committing the worst kinds of deception in the most serious of cases. The Tribune found 381 people whose homicide convictions were thrown out because prosecutors withheld evidence favorable to the defendant or knowingly used false evidence. That total includes three cases where a conviction was reversed on some other basis, but the courts made an explicit ruling that barred prosecutors from retrying the defendant because prosecutors had concealed evidence or knowingly used false evidence at the first trial.

Why Prosecutorial Misconduct and Abuses Are Taking Place So Brazenly
Prosecutorial misconduct and abuses are taking place in the United States with little fear by the prosecutors of being held accountable for their wrongdoing. The reasons for this are understandable, but take some explanation. Here is what seems to be happening:
The first thing to realize is that the tool of prosecutors is the grand jury, which operates in secret. Actually, as you may know, the grand jury doesn't operate much at all, and is usually no more than a room filled with dozing, disinterested persons (called grand jurors) who go in and out of their room almost at will, waiting for one or more prosecutors to "present" their cases to the grand jury for their rubber-stamp approval, called an "indictment".
Win at All Costs: From the "On Line Gazette," an ongoing investigation into prosecutorial misconduct. Hundreds of times during the past 10 years, federal agents and prosecutors have pursued justice by breaking the law. They lied, hid evidence, distorted facts, engaged in cover-ups, paid for perjury and set up innocent people in a relentless effort to win indictments, guilty pleas and convictions, a two-year Post-Gazette investigation found.
