The District Attorney and his Assistant District Attorneys have special obligations as licensed attorneys in the State of North Carolina and, specifically, as prosecutors.  These obligations are generally put forth in the North Carolina State Bar’s Rules of Professional Conduct.  These Rules may further explain when a prosecutor may make a public statement during the investigation, prosecution, or appeal of a particular case. The Rules also dictate what information any such statement may include.
