This will not come as a surprise to most of you, but the Houston Chronicle seems flabbergasted that prosecutors are rarely held accountable for convicting the innocent; they are quick to point out that Ken Anderson received a whopping 10 day sentence for his role in sending Michael Morton to prison for over 20 years, and that Charles Sebesta was disbarred for his actions that resulted in Anthony Graves’ 18 years of wrongful incarceration.

            In fact, hardly any time at all is spent on the report, or the many, many overturned cases here in Texas that have not resulted in any repercussions for prosecutors. Mo mention of medical ‘experts’ who have used faulty evidence to convict and yet continue their careers as witnesses but still, it’s a good thing to see a study like this getting attention from a major newspaper.
