Protest prosecutor misconduct

From SAVE Services:

Over-criminalization is a hot-topic in America. And for good reason. Last week we told you about the Center for Prosecutor Integrity's recent survey on the criminal justice system, where two-fifths (42.8%) of the respondents said they believe that prosecutor misconduct is widespread.

We learned that 71.4% believe most cases of prosecutor misconduct are kept hidden from the public. And 73.5% believe prosecutors who commit misconduct are almost never punished. Now it's time to do something about that.

Contact your state lawmakers today, and ask that they put effort towards ending over-prosecution.

Thank you for joining our efforts to restore confidence in America's criminal justice system.
