How does a assistant state attorney in Florida decide which criminals to go after?

Video Transcription:

Several factors are considered by an assistant state attorney who is determining whom to prosecute. The number one factor would most likely be the individual’s criminal history. Individuals who have had repeat offenses are oftentimes singled out by prosecutors for prosecution. However, the flip side is also often the case. People who are first offenders are routinely viewed by the prosecutors office as such, and therefore for individuals who are charged as first offenders, a lot can be done as it relates to the nature of the charges that are ultimately brought forward by the state.
