When the Police Become Prosecutors

This article, "When the Police Become Prosecutors" in The New York Times, taught me something about the criminal law I had no idea existed. In some states, many thousands of misdemeanor cases are brought by police officers without lawyers as prosecutors. The article, by a Harvard Law scholar, suggests this practice causes harm by not separating the arresting power from the prosecuting power. I'm inclined to agree. A fresh set of eyes by a prosecutor can prevent a person from getting stuck with a conviction for a weak case that shouldn't have been brought. 

Jealous Ex-husband Admits to Planting Marijuana, Framing An Innocent Man

Sometimes we comment on issues of national importance. Sometimes, not. In this juicy case, arising from suburban Toledo, a male teacher was dating a woman whose ex-husband admits to planting marijuana in his car out of jealousy! Most of the time we tend to think that the state and federal governments have way too many criminal laws. But this case shows an unusual gap. Ohio lacks a felony that fits the planting of false evidence. Creatively, the prosecutor charged kidnapping-- on the grounds that the guy who planted the evidence intended the victim to spend time in jail. The case is in trial. The defense lawyer, Stevin Groth is very good. We shall see what the jury does.
