When you hire an attorney to defend you in a criminal matter and your attorney becomes aware of Prosecutorial Misconduct and/or ethics violations from prosecutors which directly impact on your case, aren't they supposed to "take proper action?" Well, in Rhode Island "proper action" is to look the other way and do nothing. Read how Atty. John Brown represented Danny Brown in a criminal trial.
It is a common complaint in Rhode Island Courts that lawyers and judges are extremely hesitant to address Prosecutorial Misconduct when it is raised and sometimes willfully disregard it. Many times you will be told, "Prosecutorial Misconduct is an issue for appeal." The fact the appeals process could take years seems irrelevant to them.
Attorney John Brown Was Disciplined By The Rhode Island Supreme Court Disciplinary Board. Contact the board for details.
