Johnson, Wheatt, Glover – All Charges Dismissed – After 20 Years

Johnson, Wheatt, Glover – this was the very first case I worked on with the Ohio Innocence Project eight and a half years ago. At the time, it was a GSR case (gunshot residue). The GSR evidence was always highly questionable, but it was a major factor in their conviction. As it turns out, not only was the GSR evidence bogus, but the case is also an example of egregious prosecutorial misconduct.

Please see the story by Maurice Possley on the National Registry of Exonerations website here.

  1. “As it turns out, not only was the GSR evidence bogus, but the case is also an example of egregious prosecutorial misconduct.” (Phil Locke)

    So, will the prosecutors be held accountable? If not, absolute immunity for prosecutors must be eliminated. Then, wrongful convictions would evaporate, along with all the “gravy train” enriching the profiteers in human misery and put a dent in the politicized and incentivized criminal justice.
