I have written about this guy before, acknowledging his road to redemption. But would you accept an offer of $7 million to spend decades in prison? Of course not!  We MUST end prosecutor misconduct and we must end wrongful convictions. See many articles on this website on how that can be accomplished, not the least of which is ending the war on drugs!

DEFENDING THE CONVICTION INTEGRITY UNIT IN ST. LOUIS – Of last year’s exonerations, 107 involved official misconduct, 111 included perjury or false accusations, and 31 were based at least in part on mistaken eyewitness identifications. – kra

Yes, the system is so fucked up that more than 40 prosecutors offices now have conviction integrity units!  Many more, at the city, county and state levels, SHOULD have them. Excerpts from the Article: In the past 30 years, exonerations have freed people who have collectively spent over 20,000 years in prison due to wrongful convictions. Since 1989, more than 2,400 people have been exonerated. This year alone, there have been 80 exonerations so...

Prosecutors tell innocent defendants that they will be freed if they plead guilty to a lesser charge; if they do not they will be retried, which could mean many more years of prison.  Some prosecutors say these...

Quit? He Should Have Been Fired and escorted out of the building with his little dingle dangle super glued to his belly! I was a prosecutor, had several similar temptations, and did not do what I knew quite clearly would have been improper. There is no excuse for this guy’s behavior. The state Bar should suspend him immediately, pending the outcome of the police investigation. Excerpts from the Article: A state prosecutor has resigned...

Maryland lawmakers urge compensating wrongly incarcerated – And I say Add This Doubling it Feature! – kra

Now 33 states and the Federal government have some form of compensation law for the wrongfully convicted. Every state should. In my view, one cannot put a price on the harm done, but the compensation should be significant. And I say that if it is found that a bad cop, a bad prosecutor, or a bad judge … or any other government official … has been the cause for wrongful incarceration, THE COMPENSATION SHOULD DOUBLE! There is NO excuse...
