The US Court System

1. In 500 words or more, explain the role of the Prosecutor in the Criminal Justice system. Include what prosecutors do at various stages of the Process, from beginning to end. Also, detail how prosecutors interact with others in the system (police officers, defense attorneys, judges, probation officers, etc.) and how those interactions affect how the Prosecutor does his/her job.

2. In addition to the standard Rules of Ethics that apply to all lawyers, Prosecutors have Ethical Rules that apply only to them. Discuss these unique rules for Prosecutors and give two examples, from the textbook, of Prosecutors who failed to follow these rules. State what specifically they did to violate the Rules, and what they ethically should have done.

3. Most Prosecutors have autonomy and broad discretion in the way they handle their cases. However, the textbook (on pages 161-162) discusses some efforts that have been made to force prosecutors to follow strict policies beyond the individual Prosecutor’s control. Based on what you’ve read in the textbook, how does the Criminal Justice Process benefit from Prosecutors having autonomy and discretion? What are the dangers of Prosecutors having autonomy and broad discretion? What would be the benefits and dangers of imposing strict policies on Prosecutors?

a minimum of 1,200 words (total assignment) and three scholarly sources. All answers must be cited in APA format and referenced in APA format
