USA Today:  “Judges have warned for decades that misconduct by prosecutors threatens the Constitution’s promise of a fair trial. Congress in 1997 enacted a law aimed at ending such abuses.  Yet USA TODAY documented 201 criminal cases in the years that followed in which judges determined that Justice Department prosecutors — the nation’s most elite and powerful law enforcement officials — themselves violated laws or ethics rules.”

The Arizona Republic story called “Arizona farmer’s case highlights record of federal lawyers’ misconduct” reports on six of these abuse cases that involved Arizona residents.
