Prosecutors in Massachusetts wield incredible power and can break the rules with little consequence. Even when prosecutors' misdeeds have prompted courts to toss convictions and release defendants from prison, those same prosecutors have gone on to hold higher public positions. NECIR Investigative Reporter Brooke Williams leads a discussion on these issues, their impacts and the surrounding lack of transparency.
WGBH General Manager of Radio Phil Redo and NECIR's Executive Director and Co-Founder Joe Bergantino begin an evening of probing questions with Williams and panelists Veronica J. White, criminal defense attorney, Diane Juliar, Clinical Professor of Law at Suffolk University Law School and former Judge Carol Ball.
