Prosecutorial Misconduct in NC, Sandy & Supris

Before a home invasion robbery trial, the Prosecutor disguised, hid, and obscured evidence that the victim of the home invasion was a major drug dealer, who had 150 pounds of marijuana seized from his home.  The ADA asked the police to delay arresting the victim for trafficking until after the home invasion trial.  The ADA secretly communicated and coordinated this subterfuge with the police department using her private email accounts, and denied the defendant's access to evidence that bolster their claims that the victim was, in fact, a drug dealer and the defendants were there to settle accounts on a drug deal.  The ADA allowed the victim to testify that he was not a drug dealer, a claim that she knew or should have known was false.  This information came to light during the federal prosecution of the "victim". Convictions overturned. Court of Appeals Opinion. The Defendant's MAR.
