Discuss and explain your responses:
- What is the role of the investigators when working with the prosecutor?
- If an investigator admits to the prosecutor that evidence was planted that led to the arrest, what, if anything, should the prosecutor do?
- Imagine a defendant on trial for a murder where evidence collection was done perfectly and the defense attorney can not find anything to disprove their client’s guilt. At this point, what is the role of the defense attorney in the criminal court process?
- Do you think investigators ever withhold evidence in cases to further a successful prosecution? Is this ever justified? What, if any consequences, should there be if an investigator withholds evidence?
