Washington, DC–A two-year investigation of the prosecution of late Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens reveals that federal prosecutors and an FBI agent involved in the case deliberately and wrongfully attempted to convict a sitting U.S. senator on corruption charges they knew, or should have known, were unfounded.

Cary, of Williams & Connolly LLP, who will discuss the case, the Schuelke prosecutorial misconduct report, and the future of federal discovery reform. Mr. Cary is a member of NACDL’s White Collar Crime Committee. This in-depth interview is an NACDL exclusive event.
