Barry Pollack Quoted in the Washington Times Regarding Government Request to Set Aside Stevens Conviction

“Justice moves to clear Stevens”
Washington Times
04.02.09Barry Pollack comments on the Justice Department’s request to set aside the conviction of former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens and acknowledgement of prosecutorial misconduct in the case. Pollack says he believes federal prosecutors' zeal to win convictions frequently keeps them from meeting their full obligations to turn over potentially exculpatory evidence. "If the government really believes in its case, it can't be afraid to let the jury see the evidence and make a decision. It's a very encouraging sign that the new attorney general is going to take the department's obligations seriously and hold Department of Justice prosecutors to the highest standards," he says.
