Prosecutors, like judges must abide by state and federal laws and guidelines. If they are unethical they decide which laws they follow and may allow their personal prejudices to affect how they decide to do their job. With crowded court case loads, prosecutors pick and choose cases based on criminal records and evidence. They do not like to lose a case.
