Data Driven Justice: Prosecutorial Accountability & Transparency
Prosecutors are powerful players in the criminal legal system; they decide who will be charged, what plea bargains will be offered, and what punishments will be imposed. Despite this, prosecutorial decision-making is done with little transparency or accountability.
This month Connecticut became the first state to mandate the collection of prosecutorial decision-making data. Now the push comes to Congress.
Join us for a discussion on the state of the US court system and how technology can offer new solutions to ensure greater accountability and transparency within the criminal justice system.
