“USA Today exposes a “pattern of serious, glaring misconduct” among federal prosecutors”

That’s the post by Doug Berman at Sentencing Law and Policy, which extensively excerpts this article, which Doug accurately characterizes as “potent and disturbing.” From the piece:
Judges have warned for decades that misconduct by prosecutors threatens the Constitution’s promise of a fair trial. Congress in 1997 enacted a law aimed at ending such abuses. Yet USA TODAY documented 201 criminal cases in the years that followed in which judges determined that Justice Department prosecutors — the nation’s most elite and powerful law enforcement officials — themselves violated laws or ethics rules.
