Prosecutor Seavers / It’s In The News
Prosecutor Dan Satterberg through his prosecutor’s site news in his legal briefs.
Indeed, Prosecutor Dan Satterberg abuses his journalism degree by trying his trials in and off-court – through lynch-mob media maneuverings.
Since this is Satterberg’s and his prosecutor’s methods, it is time Defense attorneys start doing the same – if they can locate any courage.
You shall not pervert justice.

D.C. police violated the civil rights of an innocent man imprisoned for 27 years, making the District liable to pay damages for framing him in a 1981 rape and murder, a federal jury found Wednesday.
After hearing seven days of testimony, jurors deliberated for less than seven hours before returning the civil verdict Wednesday for Donald E. Gates, 64, of Knoxville, Tenn. The case is the first federal civil rights claim for damages involving a wrongful conviction in the District.
Gates was exonerated in 2009 through DNA testing while serving a life sentence for the June 1981 murder of a 21-year-old Georgetown University student in Rock Creek Park. Federal prosecutors found the real killer in 2012 after tracing genetic evidence at the scene to a convicted offender and temporary janitor who worked in the same building as the victim, Catherine T. Schilling of Locust, N.J.
The decision means the District government could be ordered to pay millions of dollars for misconduct by police homicide detectives Ronald S. Taylor and Norman Brooks, now retired.
By law, jurors are not limited to what compensatory and punitive damages they may award in the next phase of trial before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard W. Roberts of the District.
“It feels like the God of the King James Bible is real, and he answered my prayers,” Gates said as he exited the courtroom with a cane. “Justice is on the way to being fulfilled. We’ve still got some more work to do. It’s one of the happiest days of my life.”
