After my friend received a grossly unjustified restitution sentence, I discovered a great number of false statements in her discovery package that were cited by the judge in his opinion letter. When I brought these false statements to the attention of the prosecutor, he told me he could not investigate these false statements until after I had reported the crime to the police. I reported the acts of filing false statements with the police. After hearing nothing for two weeks, I went back to the police and was told that the prosecutor had told them not to investigate the false statements. Filing false statements to the police is a crime in Oregon.
Can a prosecutor ethically prevent the police from investigating a crime such as perjury that resulted in assisting the prosecutor?
