14. I'm sorry for Jim's and your tragic involvement in this mess.
Sad to say, this happens every frickin day. Some prosecutor who needs a story or has a bias or gets a wild hair up his/her arse can ruin someone's life.

There have been so many cases of prosecutorial misconduct on all types of cases, and especially capital cases, that it's disgusting.

The remedy, of course, is to hold accountable the prosecutors who commit these fell deeds. For instance, a prosecutor who gins up a capital murder case with evidence he/she knows to be false, is guilty of attempted murder in the pursuit of his/her own personal ambition. Is there a law on the books that allows for the prosecutor to be prosecuted? I don't think so. Unless I'm mistaken, the penalty is disbarrment. Wooooo. How terrible!!!

Put the bastards in prison. That'll stop a bunch of this crap.
