A Remarkable Story:
Over at Simple Justice, Scott Greenfield has an astonishing post about a criminal case that deserves much wider attention: People v. Flores, in which a defendant was accidentally convicted of murder and then sentenced for murder even though the murder charge had already been dismissed. If the facts of Scott's post check out, this case is an unbelievable story of ineptness and prosecutorial abuse. And as Scott notes, it's a story that the Appellate Court seems to have wanted to keep quiet; while the court vacated the conviction for the nonexistent murder charge, it did so as quietly as possible. If you're a journalist, this sounds like a story you should check out.
