DOJ asks Court to Toss Ted Stevens' Conviction
The Justice Department has asked a federal court in Alaska to throw out the conviction of former Senator Ted Stevens.
In a statement, Attorney General Eric Holder said he and other Justice lawyers had reviewed the case and "concluded that certain information should have been provided to the defense for use at trial."
"In light of this conclusion, and in consideration of the totality of the circumstances of this particular case, I have determined that it is in the interest of justice to dismiss the indictment and not proceed with a new trial," Holder said.
