In September 2010, USA Today published the first of several articles about prosecutorial misconduct. In that article they discussed Nino Lyons who was convicted in a case where the prosecutors:
covered up evidence that could have discredited many of Lyons’ accusers. They never revealed that a convict who claimed to have purchased hundreds of pounds of cocaine from Lyons struggled even to identify his photograph. And they hid the fact that prosecutors had promised to let others out of prison early in exchange for their cooperation.
As we’ve discussed both types of information must be disclosed.
