Judge Amul Thapar, a former federal prosecutor and United States Attorney, will discuss his experience in prosecuting local officials and spearheading various public corruption investigations. These prosecutions included those of public officials for, among other things, bribery, vote fraud, vote buying, "honest services" fraud, and jury tampering. Judge Thapar will use these cases to illustrate the process of building a public corruption prosecution. He will also explain the tension that exists between such prosecutions and the principles of federalism.
