For the First Time Ever, a Prosecutor Will Go to Jail for Wrongfully Convicting an Innocent Man

Why don't defense attorneys ask judges to question prosecutors on this point? If prosecutors lie, it is contempt. If judges refuse to ask, it should be a mistrial and an avenue for appeal.

Of course all this assumes that people in the prison industrial complex give a shit about justice.

I have held contempt for prosecutors for a long time. Knowing someone near and dear to me being railroaded was a terrifying experience when I knew the individual was innocent. With effort I was able to provide documenting proof that the person was not guilty and deserving a 5-10 year sentence of which the prosecutor was adamant of achieving. Fortunately the judge dressed down the prosecutor for his cowboy, hot dog attempt. Unfortunately the individual still had to plead guilty to the charge, and got a one year probation out of it. It sure beat 5-10 years.
