Eliminate Immunity for all prosecutors who are guilty of any type of official misconduct whether malicious or negligent.

If prosecutors follow the law then the blanket immunity which they enjoy would not be necessary. Unfortunately, the reality is that because of immunity, many prosecutors routinely violate ethical norms and legal standards by prosecuting people who they know, or should know, to be innocent. They routinely disregard exculpatory evidence, and often fail to divulge this information to defense attorneys. Prosecutors need to be held accountable for their misdeeds, whether malicious or negligent, when they result in the destruction or severe disruption of innocent individuals lives.
Please enact a federal statute that strips away immunity from prosecutors, regardless of their jurisdictional venue, who pursue actions against individuals where the evidence clearly demonstrates that the allegations against the individual who they are charging are clearly false, and retroactively provide for compensation to victims of this type of egregious prosecutorial misconduct .
