Prominent Denver defense lawyer pushes for statewide prosecutor accountability law
Barry Morphew’s lawyer said “nothing ever happens to prosecutors” who commit misconduct.

In April, the judge in the case sanctioned prosecutors for what he described as a “continuing pattern” of failing to turn over evidence to the defense. Two weeks later, Morphew walked out of the Fremont County courthouse a free man after prosecutors dropped the charges against him.
