In a recent article, The Professional Discipline of Prosecutors, Professor Fred C. Zacharias reports the results of an empirical study he has conducted of disciplinary actions against prosecutors. Based on a computer search of reported cases, he concludes that there is an "overall trend of infrequent [disciplinary] prosecutions," suggesting "neglect or sloth" on the part of the authorities, and he properly calls for more effective use of professional discipline of prosecutors.
