    Justice Department admits new mistakes

    Justice Department admits new mistakes | Comcast.net

    WASHINGTON Attorney General Eric Holder asked a court Thursday to release two imprisoned former Alaska state lawmakers after the Justice Department found prosecutors improperly handled evidence in their trials on corruption charges.

    The move is the second embarrassing retreat for Justice Department prosecutors since the conviction of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens was tossed out of court in April.

    That prompted an internal inquiry into the government lawyers who handled the Stevens case, and officials said Thursday there also would be an investigation of how the cases of the two Alaska state lawmakers were handled. Most of the prosecution team is the same for all three cases.


    Wow what the hell is going on with the Justice Department

    Kohring was convicted in November 2007 of bribery and extortion-related charges and sentenced in 2008 to 3 1/2 years in prison. Kott was also convicted in 2007 and sentenced to six years in prison. Like Stevens, both are Republicans.
    it's not something currently wrong, or probably more accurately, it's not something current this time. I would guess these are career lawyers involved, so the problem is probably still there,

    Sounds like they screwed up in 2007 and Holder is trying to clean up the mess.
