No, I think we can be pretty sure the guy is guilty. The distortions introduced by the prosecutor mainly just concern the scale of the crime. But Stevens was corrupt, no question.

This is a remarkably stupid post. These prosecutors violated the law, their oaths of office, abused their positions in government and used the power of the Federal government to railroad this guy out of office, probably bankrupting him in the process because of the legal fees he incurred. They grossly abused their power- and these are the people who are supposed to be promoting justice.
These lawyers deserve to be disbarred at a minimum. This is nothing short of government opression, and your attitude is "he is probably guilty?" Justice requires a fair trial and proof, not your ridiculous opinion.

Am I the only person suspicious of why the prosecutors gamed the system? Did they do it in their zeal to prosecute Stevens, or did they do it knowing it would create a possible roadblock to his ultimate conviction?

Legal proceedings!â¦IT IS WAR TO THE BITTER END !
I think that the governor should and must try to take down with him,â¦try to take down with him AS MANY AS HE POSSIBLY CAN. Number of his suposely âfriendsâ gave him the back and some even stabbed-back at him.
Legal procedings started ! so,.., IS WAR TO THE END !,â¦so logic dictates that he should uncovered all those individuals ( some of them already in Washington in the new administration) name them, so the public will know them for real,â¦EVEN IF IN THE PROCESS, PRES OBAMA FALLS IN THE MIX TOO,â¦AFTER ALL HE IS PRODUCT OF THE SAME CHICAGO-CORRUPTED POLILTICAL ATMOSPHERE,â¦so, should Obama is one of the ones to go down ,â¦that will not take me for surprise at all !,â¦.AND NOBODY, ABSOLUTELY NOBODY !, SHOULD BE SURPRISED FOR THAT, NEITHER.
Thanks , for reading.

The answer to your first question is "no".
The answer to your second question is "yes, but it doesn't matter."
Unforgiveable conduct, regardless of motive... I'm with poster #1, in that I'm pretty sure he did it.
But I also regognize now we'll never know for sure which means the bigger crime was on the part of the prosecutors.
