This webinar series is hosted by the NAGTRI Center for Ethics and Public Integrity.
This two-part series introduces The Anticorruption Manual: A Guide for State Prosecutors through its editors and several authors who wrote its 30 chapters. The first webinar focuses on the different contexts in which corruption arises, as well as the management of investigations. The second webinar addresses legal, ethical, and strategic issues that may face corruption prosecutors when deciding to file criminal charges; how to establish an administrative ethics body and pursue remedies before that body; and when and how to seek asset forfeiture as a remedy.
Part II: This webinar addresses certain legal, ethical, and strategic issues that may face corruption prosecutors when deciding to file criminal charges, to pursue administrative remedies before an ethics board, or to seek asset forfeiture. Anthony Picione will discuss legal, strategic, ethical, and practical considerations relating to when a prosecutor should file corruption charges. Darrin Sobin will draw on his experience as the first Director of Government Ethics at the D.C. Board of Ethics and Government Accountability to discuss the important role non-criminal ethics enforcement can play in the fight against corruption. Alice Dery will discuss how prosecutors can use asset forfeiture to deprive corrupt officials of the fruits of their crimes and to recover and restore funds to injured communities.
