Criminal Justice: Misconduct prosecutors are anonymous in higher court records

Since prosecutor’s can’t be sued because of the SCOTUS Connick immunity decision, redacted or  “confidental” higher courts’ rulings do not name a DA’s misconduct, (see Radley Balko‘s article below) is yet another prong of prosecutorial self protection. No wonder it takes on the average 13 years to exonerate an innocent defendant. The appellate opinions don’t identify who the bad DA’s are in the system.

TOTAL DNA exons are at 312. @cisdds
