Emily Bazelon on Prosecutorial Power

April 27 @ 12:30 pm

Event Categories:
Companion Ticket

The American criminal justice system was designed to equip two equal sides in each case: a prosecution and a defense, with judges ensuring a fair fight. In most American courtrooms, however, reality falls far from this ideal. Emily Bazelon will reveal how large a role prosecutors play in determining the outcome of a case. Their role in determining key decisions – from the amount of bail to sentence lengths – means they ultimately have the power to decide who goes free and who goes to prison, who lives and who dies.
