If you’ve been following the David Temple story, you know that Judge Gist found veteran ex-prosecutor Kelly Siegler committed at least 36 instances of misconduct and/or hid evidence. A prosecutor’s duty is to do justice. How can justice be had amongst lies, hidden evidence, and a win at all costs mentality?
Now, lawyers for David Temple have requested the Office of District Attorney, which has accepted no responsibility for prior transgressions by its own, to recuse itself from the continuing legal battle.
Instead of determining whether or not recusal is in the interest of justice, Devon Anderson asks, “Why should I?” In essence she says they have not given her a good reason to recuse her office.
How about Justice? How about Integrity? How about Public Trust? How about Appearance of Impropriety?
We can think of many reasons that seem to escape Ms. Anderson.
