ABA Model Rule 3.8 sets forth a prosecutor’s ethical responsibilities.  How does a prosecutor’s inherent humanness – and their susceptibility to the influences of implicit bias and confirmation bias – impact their ability to meet their duty under Rule 3.8 and fulfill their role as a Minister of Justice?
