  • Orange County cases that used jailhouse snitch evidence must be re-examined, experts say

    The Huffington Post - 03/28/2016

    Daniel Medwed, a law professor at Northeastern University who has written about prosecutorial misconduct at length, added that the Ortiz case illustrates how informant evidence, when introduced in a jury trial, can be “outcome-determinative” because jurors don’t always view the evidence with the appropriate skepticism.

    “The legitimacy of the criminal justice system in Orange County is on the line here,” Medwed said, “and I hope prosecutors and judges err on the side of justice and transparency by giving all cases tainted by the informant scandal a legitimate fresh look.”
