Great to have courageous judges that follow the law.
So according to the prosecutor, a person who is wrongly convicted, i.e. the old
evidence got it wrong, can only be exonerated if new evidence is found. I would
think that if it can be shown that a conviction was wrong,it should not matter
if the evidence was new or old.
VariedHue: Here here!
Hope the Attorney Generals Office will not pursue this any case any further. She
has spent 17 years in jail already for a poorly investigated crime. She might
have not been convicted if the police had been diligent in their investigation.
Perhaps the Attorney Generals Office might look to what is going on in their own
More and more often its becoming apparent why the constitution is written the
way it is and where the burden of proof is focused. The accused don't have
to prove anything and creative evidence contradicting fact are the
responsibility of the judges to dismiss at trial and this kind of injustice can
be prevented.For too many years the prosecutors have been given too
much creative latitude by judges in presenting evidence that is circumstantial.
Circumstantial means the evidence is not evidence but possibilities that cannot
be proven or disproved.An alibi is an alibi no matter how simple or
confirmable it is. People in courts and testifying are sworn to the truth, but
prosecutors are all lowed to lie and deceive and make up stories as evidence,
this is where we have to draw the line and put a stop to this circumstantial
evidence that is not fact.I don't think the judgement was
enough compensation compared to the millions the prosecutors have profited by
for the insolence and impune defiance of the justice system. In case like this
there should be some kind of punishment to prosecutors and their immoral and
unjustified conduct in criminal cases.
Only she knows for certain what the actual truth is. I would have been
disappointed if she were sent back to prison. there's just too much doubt
either way.I get the impression the Attorney Generals office wants
her to spend the rest of her life in prison regardless of her guilt or innocence
in order that what they consider a bad president isn't set.
