Prosecutorial Discretion in the John Doe Investigation

Prosecutorial Discretion in the John Doe Investigation

“Mr. Chisholm is proceeding cautiously and appropriately in this John Doe investigation because he knows that his decisions are being closely watched by the public. In his charging decisions thus far, he has been the complete opposite of “overzealous.” Perhaps that is why the only real criticism that he has received about this investigation to date is that that he is being very slow and very careful. At the end of the day, if that remains the only criticism of this investigation, the D.A.’s office will have done a very good job indeed.”
