The Oklahoma Supreme Court has suspended a former prosecutor for misconduct in gaining capital murder convictions of two men nearly 20 years ago; the court declined a recommendation by the state bar association that he be disbarred.
Robert Bradley Miller, former assistant district attorney for Oklahoma County, was suspended from practicing law for 180 days and ordered to pay more than $12,800 in court costs, the Associated Press reported. Miller faced a slew of charges by the bar, and the high court winnowed some of them.
The story is down right depressing. When you are looking to end someone’s life, there is no room for error and no room for misconduct. The bar association was correct in their assessment in my eyes. I guess the court prefers to protect their corrupt officers of the court.
State Sponsored Criminal: Robert Bradley Miller
Because who needs to be ethical when if you win they’re going to be put to death right? What difference does it make?
