Indictment & Conviction Integrity
Indictment & Conviction Integrity testing
means that we assure the crimes
for which you were charged, are
based on actual evidence available to the
District Attorney at the time your case was
submitted to a Grand Jury.
In nearly all of the criminal cases in Oregon, the
Prosecutor over charges in anticipation of a
plea bargain settlement.
Overcharging is a Crime
Coercion. (1) A person commits the crime of coercion when the person compels or induces another person to engage in conduct from which the other person has a legal right to abstain, or to abstain from engaging in conduct in which the other person has a legal right to engage, by means of instilling in the other person a fear that, if the other person refrains from the conduct compelled or induced or engages in conduct contrary to the compulsion or inducement, the actor or another will:
(e) Falsely accuse some person of a crime or cause criminal charges to be instituted against the person.”
The Fallacy of the Grand Jury
In Oregon it is commonly accepted that the
Prosecutors can obtain an indictment of a ham sandwich.
Funny perhaps, unless you are the ham sandwich. The strained bemusement refers to Oregon’s Grand Jury process. Unlike other states, Oregon prosecutors are the only people arguing the case for indictment. No defense lawyer…no judge. Just the prosecutor and a group of citizens who have a very limited knowledge of the law.
It is our position…this process, absent any adversarial or judicial presence
