Can someone tell me about prosecutorial misconduct during a criminal trial? I believe my cousin didn't get a fair trial and I am trying to get some advice.
While being questioned by the ADA the victim says "I thought you told me not to talk about the Devon incident"?
During closing arguments the Assistant DA said the following thing to the jury..... "I don't care that some of the state witnesses lied on the stand during their testimony".
I just don't understand how a ADA is allowed to say something like this to the jury and nothing be done about it. There is more to this case but can someone help me out with understanding the complex law of Louisiana regarding these 2 questions. I can then ask a few more questions that I have. Thank you
