6 Ex Prosecutor Ken Anderson jailed 3 days for misconduct in sending innocent man to 25 yrs in prison

 

Gepubliceerd op 16 nov. 2013

Ex-prosecutor Ken Anderson was sentenced to only 10 days in jail but with credit only served at total of 3 days in jail. Anderson was let out of jail Friday. Anderson, the former prosecutor and county judge was sentenced to jail time for lying and withholding evidence of Michael Morton’s innocence. As a result, Morton was wrongfully convicted and served 25 years in prison.
 
The plea deal also requires Anderson to complete 500 hours of community service, be disbarred and fined $500. Williamson County Sheriff’s Office said since Anderson was in jail for only a misdemeanor he will get a credit of two days for every one day served, and he was kept separate from other inmates because of security concerns.

8 – 60 Minutes Australia: Bad Cop, Good Cop (Part 1)

Gepubliceerd op 10 apr. 2018

 
In a special edition of 60 MINUTES, Channel Nine, reveals the sordid truth about former NSW Detective Roger Rogerson. A jury found 75-year-old Rogerson guilty of murdering 20-year-old university student Jamie Gao. The murder conviction is proof of what many people have long suspected about Roger Rogerson – that he is evil beyond belief. It’s an enormous fall from grace for the highly decorated one-time star of the New South Wales police force. In the 1980s Rogerson was viewed as a potential future police commissioner. But it was all a lie. In reality he was a bad cop, as crooked as they come.
 
For the first time, retired good cop, Mick Drury, reveals all to 60 MINUTES about Rogerson’s involvement in the assassination attempt on him in front of his young family. And Drury’s account of his battle to expose Rogerson’s corrupt ways is just the beginning of the real history of the most notorious rat in police ranks.
 
60 MINUTES also speaks exclusively to Sascha Huckstepp, the daughter of whistleblower Sallie-Anne Huckstepp who was brutally murdered in 1986. Just years before her death, Sallie-Anne famously claimed to 60 MINUTES that Rogerson had murdered her boyfriend, Warren Lanfranchi. For the first time, Sascha talks about her belief about Rogerson’s role in her mother’s killing.

13 Man Mistakenly Freed From Prison… Guess What Happens Next

Gepubliceerd op 26 sep. 2014
A Colorado convict sent back to prison after being mistakenly released 90 years early is now saying it was cruel and unusual punishment to put him back behind bars after he reformed his life. An appeal filed in the case of Rene Lima-Marin says his constitutional rights were violated when a judge ordered him to finish his sentence after he started a family during nearly six years of freedom. He was convicted in 2000 of multiple counts of robbery, kidnapping and burglary after he and another man robbed two video stores at gunpoint when he was 20. A judge issued him back-to-back sentences for a total of 98 years in prison. In 2008, he was released on parole because of a clerical mistake, and for the next six years, he lived as a free man with his wife and children. Now, he’s being sent back to jail, and the district attorney’s office says that he should have spoken up if he knew he was being released early.

Was his original sentence too much? Have you ever felt like you’ve had your freedoms taken away from you?
