Its better late than never, I guess. Good example on how DA CIUs (conviction integrity units) get a bad rap. This Cleveland DA says some of them are just ‘news releases.’

“During that sexual assault trial, prosecutors wrote two memos saying that when they tried to pin Morales down on how she calculated DNA she had to call someone else in the lab for help. Prosecutors claimed the next morning she appeared to shift her answers about her calculations. The man on trial was sentenced to 42 years in prison on an assault charge, but was found not guilty of sexual assault by the jury.”
