6. Have you dealt with any prosecutors directly regarding a case before?
I have. They try their damnedest to not press a case sometimes. "We can't prove..." is how they start many sentences when speaking directly to the victim. Investigators do it too. It can be very discouraging to someone who is already going through a difficult situation. Some just walk away without ever getting justice, but others get their own lawyer and press a civil case.
Ironically, other times, prosecutors latch on to a case like a pit bull even when evidence is flimsy and get the wrong person convicted. I guess it just depends on who the victim was and who the perp was. And the character of the prosecutor themselves of course.
