The Innocence Project at Santa Clara University School Of Law, found 130 instances of misconduct perpetrated by prosecutors in California. According to the study, the 130 instances of misconduct occurred in 102 criminal cases.

According to the study, of the all the instances of misconduct, only 18 instances of misconduct resulted in reversals of convictions. In many cases, the courts upheld convictions because they claimed the misconduct did not affect the fairness of the trial.

The study brings attention to the continued need to scrutinize the conduct and actions of California prosecutors. The number of cases involving prosecutorial misconduct is relatively small compared to the vast number of cases that are prosecuted every year.
