Follow the attorneys who are charged with the difficult job of handling the roughly 700 arrests that take place in Brooklyn everyday.
Brooklyn is ground zero for crime fighters in New York City. The borough has the city's largest population and highest crime rates: the most violent crimes, the most incidents of domestic violence, the largest incidence of crimes against children, and the most murders. And at the center of this battle are the 500 assistant district attorneys who are charged with processing the incredible load of investigative and courtroom work generated by the approximately 700 daily arrests made in the borough.
NEW YORK JUSTICE: THE PROSECUTORS takes you along as these overworked attorneys investigate potential drug dealers, execute search warrants, and prepare for indictments. Find out how over 99% of the cases are cleared without going to trial, and see what happens once they do enter the courtroom.
Join INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSTM for an inside look at the workings of one of the busiest law enforcement offices in America.
