Legal-Bay Lawsuit Settlement Funding Reports National Registry Created To Chronical Prosecutorial Misconduct

Leading lawsuit funding firm supports The Center of Prosecutorial Integrity in order to protect innocent people from wrongful convictions, wrongful imprisonment, and police brutality.

BRONX, N.Y., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reported today that a Maryland-based watchdog group has created a national registry to document cases in which prosecutors have been found by the courts to have committed unethical behavior, according to The Arizona Republic newspaper.  Legal-Bay believes the increased awareness and reporting of these various misconducts will help the public recognize the gross injustices being served within our legal system – sometimes by the very prosecutors who are sworn to uphold justice.

Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay commented on the new registry, "In the era of DNA and full media awareness of facts in each criminal case, it is about time that prosecutors pursue the innocence of individuals in the name of justice with the same zeal as they pursue convictions.  Unfortunately the recent activities of various 'Innocent Project's' have uncovered gross misconduct throughout the country that have led to lengthy wrongful prison sentences for so many innocent victims.  I'm hopeful the new national registry will begin to change the landscape on how detectives and prosecutors pursue convictions." 

Legal-Bay has seen a huge jump in lawsuit funding applications in New York where numerous high profile wrongful imprisoned and wrongfully convicted individuals have finally obtained freedom.  In one particular case, Martin Tankleff of New York settled a wrongful conviction suit for $3.3MM after serving over 15 years in prison.  In another case, Danny Colon and Anthony Ortiz were freed after serving 17 years in upstate NY prisons, one being Attica State Prison.  The Daily News reported in 2013 that Colon and Ortiz filed a $100MM wrongful conviction, wrongful imprisonment and prosecutorial misconduct suit over Brady Violations.    

The Website for the Center of Prosecutorial Integrity has said that over 43% of all wrongful convictions are due to misconduct, of which 75% were due to Brady Violations of withholding evidence against the defendant.  The Center also sites that 15% of all Rape cases in the Commonwealth of Virginia have led to wrongful convictions, now that DNA has been able to lead to exculpatory evidence to clear the wrongfully convicted.  The website has also stated that blacks have led to 10% longer sentences as opposed to whites with similar crimes.  The new registry aims to reverse these trends, says Legal-Bay. 

Legal-Bay Settlement Funding has been an advocate for wrongfully convicted, wrongfully imprisoned and victims of police brutality.  The company has helped so many victims get their lives back in order once they have been released from lengthy incarceration by offering lawsuit cash advances once the plaintiff has hired a lawyer to file a prosecutorial misconduct lawsuit in state or federal court.  Legal-Bay has been able to get approvals for individuals for amounts up to $100,000.00 so victims can start their new life with dignity, without waiting for their case to be settled.  To learn more about Legal-Bay's lawsuit cash advance program, log onto:  http://lawsuitssettlementfunding.com/wrongful-imprisonment.php.

Legal-Bay's lawsuit cash advance program is not a lawsuit loan, meaning you only need to payback the funds if you are ultimately successful in your suit.  So, there is no risk in applying, no credit checks and no monthly payments like a credit card; your application will be approved within 48 hours based solely on the merits of your case. 

To apply right now for up to $100,000.00 in a lawsuit funding on your wrongful imprisonment case, go to: http://lawsuitssettlementfunding.com or by calling Legal-Bay's toll free hotline at: 877.571.0405 where live agents are always available to answer your pre-settlement funding questions.
