Ends up the guy was still convicted at his second trial but what if he hadn’t been? 6 hours in a class for a case that he has spent 3 years in prison for already? They may claim it isn’t the norm, but honestly doing it the first time is the hardest, after that you know you can get away with it. You either work ethically, do your job and due diligence, or you don’t. You don’t magically get a pass because, “Well this was the first time.” Well sorry but that’s someone’s life you’re messing with and if you can’t be responsible enough to do the job right, you have no business wielding that power.
I wonder if there would be such leniency if these acts had been committed by a defense attorney and not a prosecutor.
State Sponsored Criminal: Assistant District Attorney Mary Kellett
Because the rules of the Bar are for everyone else. Just because a prosecutor who’s unethical can ruin a mans life doesn’t mean they should be held accountable when they’re caught being.
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.

Because who needs to be ethical when if you win they’re going to be put to death right? What difference does it make?
Given the power of a prosecutor he should be held personally accountable and it should take a court of law to prove his that he was acting in the interests of the state in good faith. When you do something that breaks the rules, you should pay, not the tax payers.
Prosecutorial misconduct. Well folks, this one is a hot button of mine. Ask the average citizen, and they are totally unaware that such a thing ever happens. After all, prosecutors are honorable people who are committed to ethics, justice, upholding the law, and to helping protect the public by ensuring that the ”bad guys” are sternly dealt with, and if necessary, isolated from society, or even put to death.
[Yup, many seem to think prosecutors are some how infallible or some how looking out for the best interests of society, victims, or any number of things. They’re only actually looking out for one thing, their careers. I’ve had numerous other people come into my life recently who have had their own experiences with the local prosecutor, not to mention a run in from the prosecutorial side.
Nothing says stand up guy than saying there’s not enough evidence to pursue charges against someone for committing a crime even though they posted pictures of themselves committing said crime on Facebook. *No this is neither a joke or exaggeration. A man broken in and vandalized a property and took pictures of himself trespassing on said property as well vandalizing it. The response of the prosecutors office was, “Not enough evidence to prosecute.”*
Remember that the next time you think the law will somehow provide justice. Because as I’ve said before, “there is no correlation between the law and justice”. Not to mention the prosecutorial motto, “It takes a good prosecutor to convict a guilty man, it takes a great prosecutor to convict an innocent one.”
I’ve made comments before about good and great prosecutors. The bottom line is these men can withhold information and otherwise ruin the lives of honest men merely because they some how get caught in the gears. While it can happen, actions like this are grossly negligent and speak volumes to the character of the man holding the position.
