The Center for Prosecutor Integrity (CPI) announced today the expansion of its efforts to identify and analyze prosecutorial misconduct to include state and local cases. The Registry initially focused on misconduct by federal prosecutors. CPI is now inviting submissions of state-level cases for inclusion in its Registry of Prosecutorial Misconduct, which was established in January 2014.
An online database, national in scope, the Registry identifies leading types of prosecutor misconduct, and enables analysis of trends and comparisons across jurisdictions through searchable sort, filter, and search functions.
Cases can also be downloaded into a spreadsheet to facilitate in-depth analyses: http://www.prosecutorintegrity.org/registry/database/
Cases qualify for inclusion in the Registry based on a determination by a bar disciplinary committee, or by a trial, appellate, or supreme court judge. CPI estimates there have been 16,000 determinations of prosecutorial misconduct nationwide since 1970.
Cases should be submitted by email to Sakeena Farhath, Registry Director: email@example.com
