A man spent 18 years on death row, coming within weeks of execution, when it came to light that the NOLA ADA withheld blood-typing evidence which proved this wasn't the guy.
The SCOTUS ruled he cannot sue the DA's office.
Oh well, guess a "sorry" and a pat on the back should suffice.
I'm all for the death penalty in theory, but just can't support it when you hear stuff like this. How could that person sleep with themselves for 18 years knowing that an innocent man was rotting away on death row because of his hiding of evidence? Did the conviction get him a bonus? A newspaper headline in the Picayune?
