More Breaking News

The Maryland Court of Special Appeals has affirmed the six murder convictions of John Allen Muhammad in a 152 page opinion. The court rejects the contention that "cumulative non-error" by the prosecutor amounts to anything, saying it is the prosecutor's job to prejudice the defendant--"The ultimate prejudice is the conviction"--so long as the prosecutor operates within the bounds of the law.
