Alan Dershowitz: Prosecutors of Zimmerman Should Be Disbarred

On the Mike Huckabee Show last night, Alan Dershowitz was interviewed about the Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case.  Dershowitz is Harvard’s famous Constitutional lawyer who is not known to be a right-winger.  He strongly believes that the special prosecuting attorneys, Angela Corey and Bernie de la Rionda, should be disbarred for failure to disclose the photos of Zimmerman’s injuries and the report containing photos and text messages pulled off Trayvon’s cell phone.  The state attorney’s office had these pieces of evidence in their possession for a long time. Not only did they choose to keep them from Zimmerman’s lawyers, but they also kept them from the judge who allowed the state attorney’s office to go forward with the charge of 2nd degree murder.  Dershowitz described this as the most outrageous example of prosecutorial malpractice that he has ever seen.


Below was copied from Real Clear Politics (and was quoted from FOX NEWS CHANNEL Mike Huckabee show):

MIKE HUCKABEE: You have said that you thought the prosecutor ought to be disbarred, that’s a pretty serious type of violation to get a person disbarred. It is that serious to you?

ALAN DERSHOWITZ: Right, it is. She submitted an affidavit that was, if not perjurious, completely misleading. She violated all kinds of rules of the profession, and her conduct bordered on criminal conduct. She, by the way, has a horrible reputation in Florida. She’s known for overcharging, she’s known for being highly political. And in this case, of course she overcharged. Halfway through the trial she realized she wasn’t going to get a second degree murder verdict, so she asked for a compromised verdict, for manslaughter. And then, she went even further and said that she was going to charge him with child abuse and felony murder. That was such a stretch that it goes beyond anything professionally responsible. She was among the most irresponsible prosecutors I’ve seen in 50 years of litigating cases, and believe me, I’ve seen good prosecutors, bad prosecutors, but rarely have I seen one as bad as this prosecutor, [Angela] Cory.
