Lead Prosecutor and Agent in Detroit Terror Trial Indicted
The Department of Justice has issued a press release stating that Richard Convertino, the lead prosecutor in the failed Detroit terrorism trial, who later claimed to be a whistleblower and sued Ashcroft, has been indicted.
A former federal prosecutor and a Department of State special agent were indicted by a federal grand jury today in Detroit on charges of conspiracy, obstruction of justice and making false declarations in the 2003 terrorism trial United States v. Koubriti in the Eastern District of Michigan, the Department of Justice announced today.
Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard G. Convertino, 45, of Canton, Mich., and Regional Security Officer Harry Raymond Smith III, 49, were named in the indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Detroit. The grand jury also charged Convertino with obstruction of justice in a second criminal case in the Eastern District of Michigan described only as United States v. John Doe.
