CrimProf Richard Klein Discusses the Heightened Interogation Standard of Prosecutors

R_kleinTouro Law School CrimProf Richard Klein recently discussed the interviewing standatds of Prosecutors with regards to charged that the Nassau's chief homicide prosecutor improperly interrogated a woman on videotape, a tactic that he said led to the woman's wrongful indictment on murder charges

CrimProf Klein said prosecutors are held to different standards than police officers in interviewing clients.

"If a prosecutor can't say something in the grand jury, then one can make a legitimate claim that the prosecutor can't communicate those same thoughts to jurors via videotape," Klein said.
