Hinton & Bailey LLP
When conflicts arise between an accused and the prosecuting authority, a court may appoint a special prosecutor. This special prosecutor becomes vested with the same power and duties as the government official for a particular case. Prosecutors, whether full-time or specially appointed are expected to fairly and honestly investigate and evaluate a set of facts. All prosecutors are charged with seeking justice--not just a conviction.
Hinton & Bailey lawyers have been asked to investigate and evaluate cases from the "other side" and serve as special prosecutors when requested in those cases where it is impossible for the elected officials to serve in their capacity.
