TODAY IN PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT: Former Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes admitted he believed man cleared of murder after nearly 16 years in prison was innocent. “In a stunning about-face, former Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes admitted in a recent deposition that he did not believe a man exonerated for murder was guilty — even though one of his prosecutors insisted, as the man’s conviction was vacated, ‘We believe in this defendant’s guilt.’”

People should be facing jail time over this, but it will be an amazing example of accountability if they’re even disbarred.
