Re: Convictions overturned — Lawyers did not turn over key evidence in trial about struggle with Payson police
Wow! This is very serious. How can you believe any of them ever again?
The Gila County attorney (from past articles) seems to have little regard for the judiciary and it shows in the conduct of his staff.
The PPD seemed to be operating on the rogue side of law enforcement. Again this is a top down problem.
There appears to be a lack of respect for the rule of law and due process, which is how the rule of law is enforced. This is not the first time that undisclosed documents have shown up after the fact to the detriment of a defendant.
On a positive note, Judge Cahill is not putting up with their nonsense. One of the bulwarks of our liberty is the power of the court to limit how the government can encroach on our individual rights and liberties. This is why we have the judiciary.
