Prosecutorial Misconduct Halts Moussaoui Trial
In a shocking development, prosecutors in the trial of accused terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui told the court this morning that a Government attorney had violated the Court's ban on speaking with witnesses. The Judge has recessed the trial and may dismiss the death penalty case against Moussaoui as a result.
Prosecutors said a Federal Aviation Administration attorney had discussed the testimony of FAA witnesses with them before they took the stand and also arranged for them to read a transcript of the government's opening statement in the case. Both actions were banned by the judge in a pre-trial order.
