Do you know how much power prosecutors have over our justice system?
Fixing a Broken Prosecutors Office
The culture of the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's office must change. Restoring trust in our criminal justice system is fundamental to building a safer St. Louis County. For far too long, the Prosecutor's office has been driven by a win-at-any-cost attitude that prioritizes high conviction rates and harsh sentencing over more effective approaches that have been proven to reduce crime. As Prosecuting Attorney, Wesley will ensure the office focuses on serious crime, obtains justice for victims, and devotes adequate resources to treating addiction and mental health, ending mass incarceration.
