"Ex-prosecutor gets jail time for wrongful conviction"

Recommended Posts

So he's going to jail for 10 days for making an innocent man suffer 25 years in prison? Well, I suppose that's better than him getting off free.

@Mikami,

 

He was also disbarred and given 500 hours of community service.

 

The little things add up.

Remember, this is a prosecutor.... being put in prison... Think about it. He has friends waiting in there.

I hate to be the one to say it, but as a prosecutor, it was Anderson's job to put Morton behind bars. Each side had a stance to defend, and sought evidence to support that stance. If Anderson knowingly hid evidence for personal reasons, that is an issue, however by presenting evidence against Morton, he was fulfilling his obligations at the time. It is sad that an innocent man had to spend that much time behind bars, but at the same time, Anderson was doing his best at the time to keep society safe from a person who he thought was a violent murderer.

@Frith is Magick,

 

Such a stance risks turning people like Morton into criminals for real (Revenge, etc.).

If ten guilty people escape rather than an innocent would suffer, wouldn't that just mean 10 more innocents will suffer, knowing each would die from each of the guilty's hands? Or am I taking this too literally? :huh:

Alternately, the 10 guilty people could just be killed in self-defense...especially if they were in the South.
