I don't know who the prosecutor was, but I'm praying it's Viggy, and I'm praying that the civil award from the lawsuit exceeds his professional insurance carrier's limits so he'll have to pay the difference out of his pocket. Make my day....he needs to go, he's the reason Portage County is known for being corrupt!

I could write a book on the crooked things he's done, and the facts would be from my personal knowledge of his crooked, unethical behavior.

No, the first defense attorney's were not completely at fault for Bob and Randy's miscarriage of justice.
The Portage County prosecutor (David Norris) and his "team" (Muldowney, Buchannen and Ron Craig) were right along with him. It was called "hide and seek." PC had exonerating evidence that could've cleared B&R, but "hid: it and expected the defense attorney's to go "seek" through the files.
Well, it's hard to find something in a file that isn't there to begin with. Then when someone lies on the stand at an evidentiary hearing that they gave ALL evidence to defense attorney's (hand delivered it, if I remember the wording correctly), what is the judge going to do? Call the Prosecutor/team liars? It's PC words against the defense attorney's.
Why in the world would B&R's seasoned defense attorney's, if they had ALL the evidence, NOT use it when your client(s) are facing the death penalty??!!
Doesn't make sense, does it?
I am not in on the whole if it was wouldn't it have been argument. I think the defense lawyers missed it and that is their fault. The whole investigation appears to have been flawed and charges shouldn't have been filed at all. But, the defense attorneys probably just missed it.

The defense attorney's did NOT "miss" a report from a toxicology lab stating that "blood" in the back of Bob's truck WASN'T blood.

They didn't "miss" the pizza work logs showing when the Domino's workers were there when the pizza was ordered and which date Bob and Randy went there to prove their alibi.

They didn't "miss" many, many statements from potential witnesses stating what they saw that night.

These items WERE NOT in the prosecutor's case file when the defense attorney's went to look at all the evidence before the trial.

This is ALL, FULL OUT CORRUPTION.

Everything that you pointed out should have been investigated by the defense. It is not the prosecutions job to investigate for the defense. The defense should have done their own investigation and found those facts. Just because they did not, doesn't automatically mean anything was hidden.

The prosecutor has a duty under the law of Rule 16 discovery and Brady v. Maryland that ALL exculpatory evidence IS TO BE formally turned over to the defense.

In this case, the prosecutor CHOSE to put these 19 or so pieces of exculpatory evidence into a box, throw it in his office and never formally turn it into the defense, which he has an ongoing duty to do.

I agree with you snickers. I was court ordered to do programs, pay fines, loss of jobs, all do to a member of our portage county judicial system! Maybe I should look into that.

So because some defense atorneys screwed up years ago, the taxpayers should pay these guys money. I say they were housed and fed for 17 years on taxpayer money, we're even. Give them a nice civil service job and let them earn their money like everybody else.
