I wonder if the victim is a black guy.

A female Prosecuting Attorney withholds evidence that would exonerate the defendant?

CNN will be welcoming her with open arms to cover missing white girls and wrongfully opine about the case.

Maybe she too will fart on TV.

Can you prosecute a person to prison?

Isn't that the act of bringing legal proceedings?

Wow. I just RTFA. You should too.
This prosecutor has a long history of failing to disclose information to the defense.

Ugh, Nancy Grace. Hasn't she found JonBenét Ramsey's killer yet?
I was watching some completely unrelated "true crime" case on some network, and at the end of the show, they had the gamut of experts offering soundbite opinions. And then BAMN, Nancy Grace. Blech.

While the disciplinary case is focused on McGowan's actions in the Kidd case, she has been suspected of misconduct in other trials. McGowan was accused of withholding evidence in the case against Richard Buchli II, a Kansas City attorney who spent about five years in prison for the 2000 death of his law partner before his murder conviction was overturned. Charges later were dismissed.

In 2013, the Kansas Supreme Court found McGowan, as a prosecutor in Douglas County, made improper comments during closing arguments in five cases between 2007 and 2009. In one instance, the court vacated a sentence in a child exploitation case. She was removed from her trial duties in Douglas County after that, but allowed to return to regular courtroom duties in 2014. McGowan retired from the Douglas County District Attorney's Office in November 2019, shortly after Kidd was freed.

In April, Keith Carnes, of Kansas City, was released from a Missouri prison after 18 years in prison. The Missouri Supreme Court determined an eyewitness' account was not disclosed to Carnes' defense team. A witness also said then-Jackson County assistant prosecutor McGowan pressured her into picking Carnes.

Yes, it's like killing a person to death.

Well, in this case, we can hope.

I am surprised something was done, especially in a place like Missouri. Hiding exculpatory evidence is darned near routine in the Merkin Just-Us System.

Be careful what you say to anyone, regardless of their place of employment, if they are responding to an accident you are involved in.

This.  Disciplinary hearing is better than nothing...but not enough, if all her prior bad acts are as reported.

Question, does the courthouse have a room full of odds and bits which fit together to create a tank?

Example one jillion of why I don't support the death penalty. You shouldn't be pro death penalty without being honest with yourself and knowing it means you're okay with putting a non trivial number of people to death who didn't do the thing you're putting them to death for.

She might lose her license for up to a year and have to do some other kind of work in the meantime. What, that's not good enough for you? Sure some guy spent 23 years in prison for something he didn't do, but she might make slightly less money for a year. I'm sure that's punishment enough for her.

Capital cases get appeals. It's all the people locked up for life that don't get lawyers assigned to their cases.

I'm saying it's what saves lives. Paradoxically, people on death row are most likely to be freed due to innocence (or at least reasonable doubt) because we provide mandatory appeals with lawyers representing people.

When we sentence people to LWOP, we leave them to languish and don't provide them with lawyers.

Is Nancy Grace ever going to find her legion of missing tots? Not children mind you, tots. She insists on calling all children tots and it's obnoxious.

Given how these usually go, she'll get a sternly worded letter criticizing her actions.  She'll keep her law license and her job.

She belongs in prison.

He spends 23 yrs in prison. She may lose her law license.
Sounds fair.
