The enormous expansion of criminal sanctions and the new style of crime legislation (see chapter 3) is also transforming the traditional role of the prosecutor (Walker 1993; Humes 1999; Stuntz 2001, 2006). Perhaps the most important feature of this change has been an enormous expansion of power at the expense of judges, paroling authorities, and defense lawyers. On the critical question of how much punishment defendants will receive if convicted, prosecutors have garnered so much power that in a real sense even the role of judge and jury as fact finder has been nullified.

With the criminal prosecution functions stationed front and center, the attorney general has also been repositioned. Attorney generals today are routinely dubbed “the nation’s prosecutors” in newspapers, but this wasn’t always so.

But beginning in the 1970s, court decisions undermined the practical achievement of any of these goals.
