NY Lawyers File Grievance Against Prosecutor
New York's criminal defense lawyers are mad as heck, and they're not going to take it any more. Fed up with "a pattern of prejudicial public statements by Westchester District Attorney Jeanine Pirro," the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers filed a disciplinary complaint against the prosecutor.
The complaint, by the group's Prosecutorial and Judicial Complaint Center, focused on a Pirro news conference in January announcing the indictment of Eddie Cordero Sr. ... The lawyers' group said Pirro implied that Cordero was HIV positive, a disclosure that might violate state law. She went on to describe the crime as a classic case why violent sex offenders should be subjected to civil detention once their prison terms are over.
