Prosecutors have enormous power.
Even investigations that don’t result in any charges can ruin people’s lives, ruin reputations, and drive their targets into bankruptcy. It has become an overtly political position — in general, but particularly at the federal level. If a prosecutor wants to ruin your life, he or she can. Even if you’ve done nothing wrong, there isn’t a whole lot you can do about it.

Prosecutors are the most powerful actors in the criminal justice system.

Prosecutors play a role in bail decisions, whether children should be charged as adults, whether people should be offered diversion programs to prevent criminal convictions and whether to charge specific enhancement crimes that add decades of prison time to charges. They also decide whether to prosecute police who violate the law. The consequences of those decisions can mean the difference between the success or failure of someone touched by the system and the overall safety of the community.

Wrongful Convictions are Real.
Johnathan Irons was arrested at age sixteen in 1997 and was sentenced to 50 years in the Missouri Department of Corrections for the non-fatal shooting of a home-owner during a burglary. There was NO physical evidence to support his sentencing.
Justice for Jonathan
This case involves the (non-fatal) shooting of a home-owner (Mr. Stockman) during a burglary at his home. Jonathan, who was only 16 years old at the time, was in the area but blocks away at the home of some friends (Amy and Christine Buckley). Although it would have been impossible for him to simultaneously be at the victim's home, and despite the fact that NO physical evidence linked him to the crime, he was convicted of the burglary and shooting and given a 50-year sentence even though he had not legally been certified as an adult. The fingerprints from the scene did match him, nor did footprint evidence or blood evidence.
Let’s bring a new vision to our justice system that moves beyond simply a result-driven finish line and instead brings a broader lens to promoting safe and healthy communities.

All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
Winston Churchill
