The New York Law Journal: Daniel R. Alonso weighs in on NY's Prosecutorial Oversight Commission
In a two-part article featured this week in the New York Law Journal, Exiger Managing Director Daniel R. Alonso, formerly the Chief Assistant District Attorney (DA) in the Manhattan DA’s office, analyizes the new law establishing of the New York State Commission on Prosecutorial Conduct, the only one of its kind in the United States. In Part 1 of his in-depth review of the Commission, Alonso scrutinizes the scope of the Commission’s authority and the potential for unintended consequences and overreach. Part 2 of the series dives into who makes up the Commission and its staff, and also examines various ways in which the Commission’s enforcement powers could conflict with the orderly operation of the criminal justice system.
Hear more from Daniel R. Alonso about the subject of prosecutorial oversight at Columbia Law School’s Center for the Advancement of Public Integrity (CAPI) on February 25th. The panel will discuss alleged constitutional concerns with the Commission and ways to promote the integrity of New York’s prosecutors.
