Murder conviction and 5 years in prison worth 1 million dollars...

This little NY Times piece about the wrongful conviction of Milton Lantigua leaves out a crucial fact--the name of the prosecutor who withheld the critical exculpatory information.

I find it sad that in a case reversed for prosecutorial misconduct, a case described by an appellate court as "especially egregious", a case that resulted in a wrongful murder conviction, and a case in which the city was so convinced of its misbehavior that it paid out a million dollars, that the paper of record would leave out the name of the offending prosecutor.

Ah well.

Her name is Sophia Yozawitz.
Shame on her.
