Registry of Prosecutorial Misconduct

The Registry of Prosecutorial Misconduct defines prosecutorial misconduct as any conduct, intentional or inadvertent, during the course of prosecution that:

  • Registry logo NEW.jpgViolates the applicable code of professional ethics
  • Breaks a pertinent law
  • Prejudices, or appears to prejudice the administration of justice

Inclusion of a case in the Registry is based on a finding by a trial court, appellate court, supreme court, or legal disciplinary body. While most cases in the Registry fall within the state’s legal definition of misconduct, some cases represent other forms of prosecutorial impropriety.

The CPI Registry of Prosecutorial Misconduct allows researchers, policymakers, bar disciplinary bodies, and others to identify common types of misconduct, assess trends, and compare jurisdictions.
