Description

A Chicago Tribune analysis of court records, appellate rulings and lawyer disciplinary records from across the nation revealed "prosecutors... have violated their oaths and the law, committing the worst kinds of deception in the most serious of cases." The newspaper's investigation found that "since a 1963 U.S. Supreme Court ruling designed to curb misconduct by prosecutors, at least 381 defendants nationally have had a homicide conviction thrown out because prosecutors concealed evidence suggesting innocence or presented evidence they knew to be false."
