A Prosecutor Is Punished (NYTimes)


In Texas, of all places.

This prosecutor withheld exculpatory evidence in a case of ‘domestic violence’ where the woman was assassinated supposedly by her husband who ended up in prison for over 20 years.

The prosecutor, who had become a judge after the facts, was sentenced to 10 days in jail. The best part is that he was disbarred and can’t practice law ever again.

As the article states, while the prison term was ridiculous, the hope is that more crooked prosecutors will eventually face the music .
