Former Attorney Faces Investigation into Old Case

Feb 10, 2012

A judge will hold a hearing in Georgetown today on whether an ex-prosecutor should face a formal investigation for allegations that he hid evidence and wrongfully sent a man to prison for nearly 25 years.

 Michael Morton was freed last fall after DNA tests implicated someone else in the 1986 murder of his wife. A formal inquiry is now being requested by his lawyers into whether then-prosecutor Ken Anderson concealed evidence.
