Missouri attorney general accused of malpractice for fighting Kevin Strickland's release

After 43 years behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit, Kevin Strickland was finally exonerated on Tuesday. But his hard-fought freedom came despite months of objections and delays from Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt.

Schmitt's handling of the case amounted to "prosecutorial malpractice," Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said on Wednesday.

“I'm hot about that because it's a misunderstanding of the very basics — prosecutor 101,” Baker told KCUR’s Up To Date.

Judge James Welsh exonerated and ordered Strickland, 62, released from the Western Missouri Correctional Center on Tuesday.

2. Several Law Schools...

...incorporate the Latin word, Veritas. The translation of this linguistic foundation is "truth". Judicial officers, lawyers, criminal and civil procedure, laws and especially all aspects of prosecution must discover and preserve truth. Anything less is betrayal.
