    NECN - 04/08/2016

    “I would think that that’s probably the tip of the iceberg,” said Daniel Medwed. He is a professor at Northeastern University’s School of Law and says misconduct ranges from prosecutors withholding evidence that could help the defense to badgering or threatening witnesses to improper remarks in closing arguments.

    “If prosecutors aren’t playing fairly, they can take advantage of the public’s faith in them and pervert the whole idea of the presumption of innocence,” he said.
