Loreweaver: It is a violation of the attorneys' code of conduct to provide sensitive information about a case to the general public, especially if you are withholding that information from opposing counsel. In this case, the prosecutor told the press (Twitter) that he was charging a witness with a crime, but he did so without actually telling the court about the charge, nor her attorney. It is a breach of protocol to withhold such information from the court.

What did he put on Twitter?  The article indicated that the defense attorney learned of the indictment on Twitter.  There wouldn't be any ethical problem releasing that, since it's public info.  And, while it's courteous to inform defense counsel that you are indicting their client (if you know they have an attorney and who it is), it's not required.  If he was talking about the case prior to the indictment and releasing non-public info, then yes, that's a bad thing.

You're telling me he was going to marry the woman in the photo?  The dude was a pro football player and that was the best he could do?  Well, sure, maybe she has a great personality or something, but, I mean she's a little butch looking, don't you think?

strangeluck: A prosecutor tweeting about a case he's working on? Should get farking disbarred over that.

Professionalism and Ethics last seen at the courthouse coffee shop crying uncontrollably.

Twitter is terrible in general, but the case has national interest, and the indictment is public information.  Why should he be disbarred?

Also, let me know if you have any idea WTF subby is talking about.
