Daniel Medwed, a law professor at Northeastern University who has written about prosecutorial misconduct in depth, told HuffPost that many CIUs function, to some extent, on a “trust us” mentality, which he says is problematic.
“Trust us to look into these cases, trust us to bring them to the attention of the courts. The problem, of course, is that the trust isn’t there — and for good reason,” Medwed said.
