This article raises disturbing questions about the role of prosecutors. Prosecutors are both at once, Executive Branch employees often burdened with the concern that they might be perceived as soft on crime and lose votes in the next election [and some won't negotiate a plea for that very reason] and yet at the same time they are Officers of the Court [sworn members of the Judiciary] with the mandate that they be totally candid with the Court. Justice Stevens criticizes a bad decision. I hope the New York Legislature compensates the man for the injustice he was made to suffer.
