A Colorado district attorney was publicly censured in light of a conditional admission that she had "negligently failed to take adequate steps to ensure the free flow of information and materials between investigative personnel and [her] office sufficient to place in their possession or control all material relevant to the accused in a murder case." The lapse led to the "fail[ure] to disclose information in the possession of, and generated by, those who participated in the investigation and evaluation of the case."
A second district attorney also was publicly censured for the same misconduct. (Mike Frisch)
