Primarily “Recognizing that there are sometimes false rape allegations is in no way inconsistent with also recognizing that rapes are often unreported, uninvestigated, and unprosecuted.” Id. at 159. Unfortunately, alleged victims can lie about an accused for several reason. I have personally witnessed an accuser lying simply because she felt embarrassed about her own conduct one night.
Additionally, recognizing that the people that control most of the narrative in this country have a hard time accepting that someone would lie about something soo extremely serious as to attempt to place another U.S. Citizen in prison. Regardless, I defer to the Lynchburg City Mayor Stephanie Reed's statement that “you are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts.” Consequently, if you have been charged with a crime you should call me for a free consultation, I am a Lynchburg Criminal Defense Attorney.
Surprisingly If you have been charged with a crime, do not be surprised when people you have known your whole life start deleting photos of you off their social media, turn on you, begin to "fit" the narrative against you. Thereupon, knowing absolutely nothing about the basis of an accusation at its foundation. Thus, God sees all and in time he will reward those that bare false witness with what they have coming to them. Fortunately, "A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will not escape." - Proverbs 19:5 (King James)
“When Police and prosecutors are caught in lies, severe penalties should follow.” Id. at 161
Furthermore, Professor Brooks quotes Professor Mark Godsey in his book regarding "Synthesized Testimony." What is synthesized Testimony? “Synthesized testimony occurs when police or prosecutors take witnesses who initially provided details helpful to the suspect and, convinced because of tunnel vision that the witness must be wrong, ask pointed questions of the witness suggesting that his or memory is off. Some witnesses take the cue and begin to question their memory. Sometimes they will change their statements to correspond with what is clear the police believe must have happened.” Id. at 160. Unfortunately, Prosecutors and Police will use this tactic in their investigation. Unquestionably it is nothing short of fraud on the court. Also, they will teach their subordinates to “not write down parts of witness statements.”
I have personally observed a prosecutor in Lynchburg City’s Bethany A.S. Harrsion’s office lie directly to a judges face. I can prove this with court transcripts. This is unacceptable and must be grounds for the elimination of prosecutorial civil suit immunity. Whereas “When prosecutors are confident they are the heroes, and they’re confident they know who the villains are, dishonest behavior can be rationalized in the pursuit of “justice” and filed away as the ends justifying the means.” Id. at 160. Undoubtedly, we live in a nation where narrsistic hubris infects the powerful, this must be brought to heal.
An example Professor Brooks addresses with Prosecutorial misconduct is an example of a prosecutor fabricating evidence that resulted in a 25 year prison sentance for an innocent man where the prosecutor only got 5 days in jail for their fraud on the court.
Additionaly, witnesses lie. Unfortunately there is one example of a witness that lied that was manipulated by a member of the bar an Attorney. Specifically, Professor Brooks discuss this in his book on page 141. It is the case of Mike Hanline. Particularly, in that case the prosecutor put someone on the witness stand that was clearly intoxicated. Overall, this is unethical conduct that prosecutors engage in. Obviously, the witness was manipulated to lie and law enforcement did little to curtail the underhanded conduct. Particularly, this conduct was blatant and obvious. Charged with a crime? Call me, I am a Lynchburg Criminal Defense Attorney.
Sometimes the authorities will use coercive tactics. Unfortunately, snitch’s will get on the witness stand under oath and spew lies about an accused. Often, this can be as part of a plea deal with prosecutors. Subsequently, there is underhanded use of “jail house” snitches where the police put a specific individual in the jail cell with an accused to obtain information. Generally, if you have been detained you should not be talking to anyone about your case other than your attorney in a properly private place. A private place is to protect attorney client privilege. There are innocent United States citizens sitting in prison as a result of prosecutors unethical use of snitches.
Subsequently, Danny Larsen was the victim of "police officers simply fabricating crimes and lying about the facts to get a conviction." Id. at 148.
Unfortunaly, sometimes its police officers themselves that will lie directly to a court. What is really scarry, “According to a 2020 report by the National Registry of Exonerations, 54 percent of wrongful convictions involve some form of official misconduct.” Id at 146. This includes, witness tampering, misconduct in obtaining false confessions, fabricating evidence, concealing exculpatory evidence, and misconduct at trial. Kamala Harris’s office is evil. Even after presented blatant evidence of innocence she pursued several wrongful prosecutions in furtherance of her political career. Id. at 149. This is evil there is literally no other way to put it. Bottom line, If you have been charged with a crime, you should call me, I am a Lynchburg Criminal Defense Attorney.
