Misbehaving Federal Prosecutors

Monday, September 27th, 2010

My crime column this week riffs on a USA Today investigation that found widespread prosecutorial misconduct among U.S. attorneys, with few if any consequences.

    Can I raise you with an AP story about FBI agents and supervisors cheating on exams over surveillance procedures?

    Great read. Forwarded to a few criminal defense lawyers I know.

    Excellent, Radley.

    I also read the articles you linked to about various abuses not discussed by USA Today. Also excellent.

    I occasionally have my disagreements with you about certain economic issues, but when it comes to discussing abuses in our criminal justice system, you are uniformly excellent.

    Speaking of USA Today:

    Wasn’t sure if you’d seen this yet.

    I don’t know whether this federal prosecutor actually deserves the charges, but I do think that stripping down to your underwear at a bar and taking a plunge in their pool probably isn’t all that cool. Especially when you try to evade police after a mother and daughter see your junk hanging out.
