Summary
The author examines the expanding power of prosecutors, from mandatory minimum sentencing laws enhancing prosecutorial control over the outcome of cases to increasing politicization of the office. Drawing on her years of experience as a public defender, Davis demonstrates how the everyday, legal exercise of prosecutorial discretion is responsible for tremendous inequities in criminal justice
