Prosecutorial Misconduct in Southern California

Southern California ranks high in reversals per capita in which prosecutorial misconduct was involved, according to a new study by the Fair Punishment Project at Harvard Law School.  The study notes that the Orange County DA’s Office has the worst reversal record per capita in California.

This finding, coupled with the recent “snitch crisis” revelations concerning the repeated misuse of jailhouse informants, offers further evidence to support a critical review of the leadership and ethical practices of the Orange County DA’s office.
