The Role of the Prosecutor as the Gatekeeper of the American Justice System – Professor Paul Butler and District Attorney John Chisholm Join us for a conversation “On the Issues with Mike Gousha” featuring Professor Paul Butler and District Attorney John Chisholm. These individuals met through their work on a national initiative to reshape prosecution programs, sponsored by Vera Institute for Justice and John Jay College’s Institute for Innovative Prosecution. Both support the initiative’s goals of developing strategies for prosecutors to reduce incarceration, promote racial equity, and increase the public’s confidence in the justice system. What are the prospects for these goals? How might success be measured?
