Written by one of the lead attorneys for U.S. Senator Ted
Stevens of Alaska, Not Guilty: The Unlawful Prosecution of U.S. Senator
Ted Stevens describes the litigation before, during, and after the trial
charging Stevens with corruption. Stevens was found guilty by a jury,
but the judgment was immediately overturned following revelations of
gross violations of Brady and other misconduct by the prosecution team
of the Public Integrity Section of the Department of Justice. The
verdict, however, led to Stevens loss of his seat in the Senate. The
book is instructive in its intricate detailing of defense strategies and
prosecutorial missteps, particularly in regards to Brady discovery, and
author Rob Cary notes that less-privileged defendants commonly face
challenges similar to those in the Stevens trial. Cary also comments on
the Schuelke Report, a special investigation of the Public Integrity
Section ordered by the trial court and released in 2012. As a result of
his experience during the trial, Cary prescribes a number of initiatives
to level the playing field between criminal defendants and the
government, particularly with respect to discovery, handling of
witnesses, and ways to address prosecutorial misconduct.

Rob Cary shows us a real example of what can happen when prosecutors want to win a conviction at any price: citizens get steamrolled. In this case, the steamrolled citizen happened to be a sitting U.S. Senator who had the means to employ a 12-lawyer defense team from the well-heeled D.C. firm Williams & Connolly.


As Cary - a prominent member of the defense team - points out, luck played a large role in exposing the lies that led to Senator Stevens's guilty verdict. As it happened, prosecutors Rob Cary shows us a real example of what can happen when prosecutors want to win a conviction at any price: citizens get steamrolled. In this case, the steamrolled citizen happened to be a sitting U.S. Senator who had the means to employ a 12-lawyer defense team from the well-heeled D.C. firm Williams & Connolly.


As Cary - a prominent member of the defense team - points out, luck played a large role in exposing the lies that led to Senator Stevens's guilty verdict. As it happened, prosecutors lied to the court, knowingly elicited false testimony, hid witnesses, and refused to produce documents to the defense. An FBI agent also assisted in the deception.


All of this in a vain attempt to prove that Senator Stevens failed to disclose a gift (a home renovation) on a Senate disclosure form. That he paid for the renovation, and in fact paid above-market value for it, was merely an inconvenience for the government's investigators and prosecutors. This book shows the number of lies the government is willing to tell in order to convict you of lying. Eye-opening to say the least.


Fortunately another FBI agent blew the whistle, the lies were uncovered, and the conviction was vacated. Justice was ultimately done. Unfortunately, there are likely many other defendants convicted due to similar lies and deceptions who will never be vindicated.


If you've ever wondered how criminal defense lawyers can defend people accused of crimes, you should read this book.

Complaint: the typography is terrible. I didn't measure, but I'd guess the left and right margins are one-third of an inch. You really have to bend the book to read text close to the gutter. The content deserves a better presentation. ...more
