Good for them. Overzealous Nancy gracesque prosecutors are the last thing we need to deal with.

It seems who can you trust today a lawyer, oh wait a minute trumps lawyer is already in jail by some double standard issue. One just has to wonder whats moral, letting prisoners ou,t and than saying we made a mistake and we want to justify the matter to make it right.
I would say everyone makes mistakes but than again what would be thr right thing to do in a situation such as the contrivirus ordeal. Talk about blood on someone’s hands or writings on the wall.

I have to say this Public Attorney has some scruples. Or do you have to have scrupples today to be a lawyer. Isn’t that what ivy leage league is all about in this school of hard knocks today for many that seek justice.

One has to wonder in this scruple scrable games of offender type justice, or officer pretending, or blaphemous compound justice by fradulent means

I don’t see the problem here with the DA or what he did. These were/are some bad dudes (Did you bother to check out their offenses?).

It is no service to reformed offenders or the ACSOL if you can’t separate the chaff from the wheat in these matters.

@Michael

The problem is the DA is possibly swaying any potential jury pool to the prosecution’s side with his comments should they come trial by jury. That is wrong for our legal system and an appealable action by those who are prosecuted. Voir Dire questioning should help eliminate those who heard such comments, but those asked may not answer truthfully and still use comments against those prosecuted.

Totally agree with you on this one. These guys had a chance and blew it. However they handle them is fine. If some don’t like it…why? This situation will never happen me so I can say that.

They buddy-buddy their way through the legislature, unfortunately it’s how much of this business was done. Once they have an angle they keep pushing it, softening up any opposition by making the target look pro-offender or “soft on crime”. Always playing the victim card.
