That's the title of Brandi Grissom's Texas Tribune post on the latest developments in the Michael Morton exoneration.
The court of inquiry that will determine whether the former prosecutor who oversaw the wrongful conviction of Michael Morton could face criminal charges will be delayed until Feb. 4, a prosecutor with the Texas attorney general’s office said Monday.
News of the delay in the inquiry involving now-Williamson County State District Judge Ken Anderson — previously scheduled for Dec. 10 — came during a hearing in the case of Mark Norwood. Norwood is charged with murdering Michael Morton’s wife, Christine, at their North Austin home in 1986, a crime for which Morton spent nearly 25 years in prison. Lawyers for Norwood are seeking to delay his trial, which is scheduled for Jan. 7 in San Angelo.
Anderson is accused of deliberately hiding evidence during Morton’s 1987 trial that indicated Morton was innocent and that another person may have killed his wife. Anderson has strenuously denied allegations of wrongdoing in the Morton case.
At Monday’s hearing, Russell Hunt Jr., Norwood’s lawyer, told Williamson County State District Judge Burt Carnes that he needed additional time to hire a DNA expert to review the state expert’s work.
