Headlines II

Nobody asked but . . .

Now here is a reasonable headline for the instant case discussed previously, “Ohio Supreme Court rules on police officer accused of having sex with a minor.”  The headline and a reasonably well-written account of the actual case appear here.  The crux is that prosecutors, who choose to proceed under shaky legislation, run the risk of losing a conviction.  This is what comes of bureaucratic scorecard keeping.  The sponsor gets a bill passed, the prosecutor gets a conviction, the defense gets a reversal, and a ton of court minions get cases closed.  Who pays?
