For John, BLUF: One's "Day in Court" should include a fair presentation of the facts. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the Associated Press, 26 March 2020.
Here is the lede plus one:
“Full House” actress Lori Loughlin, her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, and other prominent parents urged a judge Wednesday to dismiss charges against them in the college admissions bribery case, accusing prosecutors of “extraordinary” misconduct.I'm sorry, but her recent fame isn’t Full House, but, rather, When Calls the Heart.&nb; Is the AP trying to suppress the existence of the excellent Hallmark shows out there?
Defense attorneys for the famous couple and other parents still fighting the charges say the case cannot stand because investigators bullied their informant into lying and then concealed evidence that would bolster the parents’ claims of innocence.
That said, the issue is prosecutorial misconduct. For the Citizens, The People, of the United States, if the Government, representing The People, can't win fair and square it should abandon the case. Maybe the prosecutors should recall the phrase "beyond a reasonable doubt."
