Some DAs wandering afar from ethical guidelines

Leaking prosecutors seem to be getting some attention from the FEDS. But they ultimately get slapped on the pinky finger. As in prosecutor Mike Nifong in the Duke rape railroad case getting one day in jail.

Its even worse when the wrongfully convicted (mostly African Americans) get exonerated from years in prison, get no compensation from both those who prosecuted them an their junk forensic science experts.
