Disciplinary sanctions imposed on prosecutor

Long time readers of this blog know I have posted many comments and articles on the lack of accountability for prosecutorial miscondcut (most recently here).

For that reason, it is nice to report that one court has decided to impose discipline on a prosecutor for a change.

As reported in the Legal Profession blog, the the Indiana Supreme Court has sanctioned a former prosecutor it found committed attorney misconduct by failing to disclose exculpatory evidence and by prosecuting a charge she knew was not supported by probable cause. For this misconduct, the court suspended the prosecutor for at least eighteen months without automatic reinstatement.  You can read the details of the story, here.  The case is called In the Matter of Hudson and it is available here.
