Letters: Unequal justice in Texas

November 12, 2013

Re "Ex-prosecutor punished in Texas case," Nov. 9

That story about Ken Anderson, the former Texas prosecutor and judge who withheld evidence in the murder trial of a man who was eventually exonerated, was shocking. The shocking part wasn't that Anderson did it but that his punishment was so meager.

The man he wrongly sent to prison for murder (and who was released based on DNA evidence) spent 25 years behind bars. And what's Anderson's punishment? Nine days in jail, 500 hours of community service, a $500 fine and the loss of his law license. Anderson is of retirement age, so losing his license was meaningless.

The article indicated that people were rejoicing in justice being served. What am I missing?
