I enjoyed 5 years as a prosecutor, and I am appalled by so many of today’s prosecutors. They are the most powerful component of our criminal justice system, and so many lack common sense and an understanding of “fairness”. Maybe that’s why so many results in today’s courts make little sense and are unfair.  I have written on all of the ills mentioned by professor Kelly: stacking charges, rush to sentence, etc.  I...

Author John Grisham says most NC death row inmates did not receive a fair trial

The most dramatic example of how totally fucked up out criminal justice system has become is that we are convicting hundreds of innocent people every year. See related articles for how it got this way, much more on this issue, and all the causes of wrongful convictions.  Several states, thank God, now have CIUs , usually within the office of the prosecutor= Conviction Integrity Unit.
