Yet another shameful case of prosecutorial misconduct out of New Orleans

There is a new chapter in the shameful history of prosecutorial misconduct in New Orleans.  Another prisoner has been released, this time after spending 34 years in prison due to what the current Orleans Parish District Attorney called “shameful” misconduct.  What is truly shameful is that this is obviously not an isolated incident.  The case is out of the same office that resulted in Connick v. Thompson, Smith v. Cain and more.  The New Orleans Times-Picayune has the story here.
