Make Prosecutors ‘Earn’ Immunity

Posted by on Jan 10, 2022 in Featured, Other Issues |

Interesting ideas here, but they could be difficult to implement. Excerpts from the Article; When a witness embroiled in a criminal investigation is given a grant of immunity, it always comes with strings attached. The witness gets immunity, but society gets the witness’s information in exchange—all of it. If the information the witness provides isn’t truthful, or isn’t complete, the grant of immunity is withdrawn. The witness (often a...

As a former prosecutor, I say there is nothing worse than a bad prosecutor, like the one in this case! Excerpts from the Article: A Georgia man who spent 23 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit was released this week into the arms of his family, almost eight years after DNA evidence presented in court pointed to another man as the rightful suspect. “It took a really long time to fix, even though it was so clear I...

He eventually was freed and exonerated only after a podcast by a team of reporters, who unmasked the prosecutor and...

The job of a prosecutor is to be fair, not to lock people up no matter what. Excerpts from the Article: A scathing ruling by the federal court of appeals will allow an innocent man to continue his lawsuit against a former Utah County prosecutor. It’s the latest chapter of Conrad...

Ex-prosecutor gives up law license after he’s accused of withholding evidence that led to wrongful convictions

Posted by on May 23, 2021 in Featured, Other Issues |

He probably was about to be disbarred. I remember the cases referenced. As a former prosecutor, I say there is nothing worse than a rotten one!   Excerpts from the Article: Former Dallas County, Texas, prosecutor Richard E. “Rick” Jackson agreed to give up his law license last month to avoid discipline for allegedly withholding evidence that led to the wrongful convictions of two homeless men. The Innocence Project had filed a grievance...
