Ex-prosecutor gets a suspension for “actions that took the criminal justice system to the abyss”

Let’s just say that the bromance between prosecutors who lie and the justice system rendering oversight to their misdeeds is as strong as ever. A Oklahoma man convicted of murder and placed on death row was later released based on the the prosecutor using forged warrants and various Brady failures regarding special treatment of a prosecution eye witness. After reading this article, all the players seem to be well described. the current DA says the defendant is still guilty (but has lost use all his ill gotten evidence from the original trial). The state supreme court majority thinks suspension is appropriate regardless of the state bar demanding tougher punishment. The court’s minority, (it was a 5-2 vote for the lesser punishments) is the source of this post’s quotation in the title.
