Prosecutors Resist Retrial

Days after a vast majority of Colorado lawmakers sponsored a bill designed to give prison inmate Clarence Moses-EL a new trial, state prosecutors pledged to fight the effort, saying the courts already provide sound remedies for evidence loss.

Attorney General John Suthers and leaders of the Colorado District Attorneys' Council on Monday also criticized the proposal, authored by Senate Majority Leader Ken Gordon, D-Denver, as too broad and inconsistent with another bill requiring DNA preservation.

"A new trial just shouldn't be automatic," said Suthers, who added that a controversial Supreme Court precedent requiring that a defendant prove bad faith was behind evidence loss is a sufficient test provided by the courts for winning relief.

John Suther should keep quite as long as the prosecutors can make up false charges in Colorado courts and not be punished for them. I am talking about Joe Morales to be specific. He even brags of prosecuting people using false charges. I believe he belongs to the DA Morrissey's staff. I prevented documents to Cynthia Mares of the Supreme Court, regulation board who also ignores facts. DJW
