The Role of the Prosecutor in our Criminal Justice System
Join us as the Chittenden County State’s Attorney Sarah George discusses the role of the Prosecutor in our criminal justice system and the importance of State’s or District Attorneys in all of our lives.
Time & Location
Jul 20, 6:00 PM
About The Event
The Prosecutor, the District Attorney or in our case, the State’s Attorney has enormous power within our Legal and Justice System: they decide which cases are brought against criminal defendants in the District Courts; they decide which charges to bring; they decide the plea bargains to enter; they decide on sentences, they are the officers who are responsible for the police and the conduct of the police in our communities. Because of that power, Prosecutors are elected by the people and have strict ethical duties to represent all the people of our counties including the defendant, they ultimately have the responsibility of seeing that justice as well as punishment is accomplished by the legal system. Unlike the defense attorneys who represent the individual accused of crimes and have the duty of providing a zealous defense for those individuals, prosecutors represent the people or the State of Vermont.
The discussion will be a hybrid one with an in person presentation at the Association of Africans Living in Vermont at 20 Allen Street 3rd floor, and on a hybrid zoom presentation at 6pm.
