DOJ investigators have found that two prosecutors in the corruption trial of the late Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK), as well as an FBI agent, did engage in misconduct during the trial, according to the AP. But the prosecutors will not face criminal charges, according to NPR.
Stevens was found guilty on corruption charges in 2008, but Attorney General Eric Holder asked the judge to throw out his conviction over concerns of misconduct by the prosecutors.The prosecutors, Joseph Bottini and James Goeke, were accused of withholding information from Stevens’ defense. Another prosecutor, Nicholas Marsh, committed suicide in September. He was not the subject of specific findings in the report, according to NPR.
Stevens died in a plane crash this year.
