In these excerpts from Greg Curry’s trial transcripts, you can see Judge William Stapleton and Special Prosecutor Daniel Hogan assure the jury that any deals made with witnesses will be fully divulged. One witness, Lou Jones repeatedly denies making any deals with anyone. In his closing argument, Prosecutor Hogan tells the jury that it is illegal for him to conceal deals with witnesses from the defense attorneys. Then... in an appeal brief, Prosecutor Hogan describes the deal given to Lou Jones, and concealed from defense attorneys and the jury. I’m not a lawyer, but it sure looks like Hogan probably shouldn't have been allowed to be one either. Now he’s a judge.
Read the transcripts for yourself.
