The federal prosecutors in the current school administrator case have admitted that they made “mistakes” by not turning over documents that they were supposed to give to the defense team.
Now the United States attorney for the western district of Texas has stepped in and will prosecute the case.
According to an article in the Times he evidently feels that the failure of his organization to follow the law did no significant harm to the defendants, after all they are accused of committing crimes.
The defendants deserve both a fair and prompt trial.
Their first trial was stopped by the sitting judge over a year ago when it became apparent that the feds had not turned over the documents.
They were evidently ordered to cough them up.
Now we learn that even more documents are about to be produced and they think that there may be still more.
I can only come up with two possible explanations for their behavior–either they are incompetent or they chose not to obey the law.
Shame on them!
We deserve better
