Ken Anderson is a suspended Texas circuit court judge charged with criminal contempt of court, tampering with evidence, and tampering with government records in the case of Michael Morton, who was convicted of and served nearly 25 years in prison for the murder of his wife. The real killer was convicted earlier this year.
Those of you who don't practice criminal law may have forgotten the 1963 U.S. Supreme Court case Brady v. Maryland that says that suppressing evidence favorable to a defendant who has requested it is a violation of due process. With that in mind, ponder this count in the Anderson charging document:
42. [A]s Mr. Anderson explained during the Court of Inquiry, although Brady requires prosecutors to release exculpatory evidence to the defense, as an attorney and former prosecutor, he does not believe in the release of such evidence if it may result in freeing an individual that he believes is guilty.
