When a Prosecutor Must Make the Hard Decision to Dismiss or Downgrade

Joel Cohen writes for the New York Law Journal: "In many ways, it’s a far tougher road to be a state prosecutor than a federal prosecutor. Federal prosecutors, more often than not, bring cases only if they want to—if they feel there’s sufficient evidence to indict and the case is worthy of the time and effort needed to prosecute ... Imagine being the DA here—a high-profile case, a key witness with changing stories and some #MeToo advocates never too far in the background."
