Introduced legislation that would require the U.S. Department of Justice to meet a set of guidelines before entering into deferred prosecution agreements (DPAs) and would require critical independent oversight that is currently nonexistent. DPAs are increasingly being used by the Justice Department and its U.S. Attorneys to address corporate wrongdoing and corruption. These agreements replace the normal route of federal prosecution and require a potential defendant to meet certain conditions over a set period of time in order to prevent criminal charges.
