A study of 100 death sentences overturned by post-conviction evidence shows:

Over 30 of these involved prosecutorial misconduct.
Over 30 of these involved police misconduct which led to wrongful convictions.
Approximately 15 of these involved false witness testimony.
34% of the 30 cases where police misconduct was involved included the suppression of exculpatory evidence. 11% involved evidence fabrication.
37% of the 30 cases where prosecutorial misconduct was present involved suppression of exculpatory evidence. 25% involved knowing use of false testimony.

Public officials who are responsible for wrongful convictions have often knowingly restricted a citizen’s right to a fair trial, fabricated evidence which has led to a guilty verdict or engaged in severe prosecutorial misconduct. Many career prosecutors have aggressively pursued life sentences or death sentences for innocent individuals, brazenly accusing people of crimes while having full knowledge of the defendant’s likely innocence. Though many public officials remain impartial and have full respect and dignity for the rule of law, statistics show that judicial malfeasance and prosecutorial misconduct continue to be ongoing problems. Just one wrongful conviction is a blight upon the system that must be rectified at any cost. Innocent citizens who have had their rights and freedoms stolen deserve recourse against these malignant strains of injustice. It is clear that that we must put an end to the leniency and blind eye turned to official misconduct in order to put an end to wrongful convictions.

In its unanimous decision, the court said that evidence allegedly implicating Anderson had not been properly investigated. This failure had been compounded by inappropriate and unfair action by the crown prosecutor Mark Tedeschi, QC.”

Mr Bates has been fined $10,000 in the State Administrative Tribunal following an allegation brought by the Legal Profession Complaints Committee that he engaged in unsatisfactory professional conduct as a prosecutor on behalf of the crown during the 1995 trial of Mr Mallard. The fine was imposed as part of consent orders, submitted by both sides after mediation.” Mr Mallard spent 12 years in jail until exonerated.
