Where can I find some information about misconduct of prosecutors?

I'm particularly interested in misconduct of Texas prosecutors.

Answer

If you are looking for academic sources, the COM library databases are a good place to start.  Follow the link below to our Databases by Subject libguide and select the Goverment & Law tab.  All our government and law databases are provided by Ebsco.  You can search them all simultaneously by selecting EBSCO: All Government & Law Databases.

In the databases, a basic search for prosecutorial misconduct will retrieve a few hundred articles.  You can then reduce the search with the options on the left.  You could also search for prosecutorial misconduct Texas, which will retrieve two articles.

Another way to find information about this subject is to search news archives.  One option is InfoTrac Newstand, available through the link below.  In Infotrac, you can try the same searches for prosecutorial conduct or prosecutorial misconduct Texas and find some relevant articles.

In the course of looking through these articles you are likely to come across the names of specific prosecutors who have been accused of misconduct (Texas prosecutor Ken Anderson is a recent example).  Once you do, you can do new searches for the prosecutor's name to find more material about them.  If it's a common name, try adding misconduct to the search to reduce the number of irrelevant articles (ex. Ken Anderson misconduct).

There are also some useful resources available through the internet, such as The Veritas Initiative and The Innocence Project.
