Good for the judge in his uncommon use of common sense. What the 29-yo perp did was wrong but what the PA did was just as bad with his malicious prosecution. He is the one who should face sanctions for wasting the courts time and resources and the innocent public’s reputation.
With the Duke Lacrosse case and Nifong, and now with the Zimmerman/Trayvon case, everyone who didn’t know before should now realize that prosecutors are all about successful prosecutions and not about justice. And if they can get another “notch” via a plea deal, even when it is an unjust outcome looked at carefully, they will.
