Yet another conviction reversed because of improper use of PowerPoint by prosecutor
Yesterday I wrote about cases on improper arguments by prosecutors, and in particular about the improper use of PowerPoint slide shows. Amazingly, today, the Marshall Project is reporting on yet another case in which an appellate court has reversed a conviction because of improper use of PowerPoint. According to the story, the prosecutor presented 250 slides to the jury and the court found problems with more than 100 of them. The post has photos of some of the slides. The case is called State of Washington v. Walker and it is available here.
