Anderson steps down after 7 hours of testimony, judge postpones ruling
There will not be a ruling Friday on whether Ken Anderson engaged in prosecutorial misconduct in the wrongful conviction of Michael Morton. Visiting Judge Louis Sturns has given attorneys for both sides three weeks to file additional affidavits and motions in the case. After that, Sturns will review a mountain of depositions, evidence and case law to reach his decision. Morton spent more than 24 years behind bars for the murder of his wife, a crime DNA evidence later proved he did not commit. Anderson is accused of withholding critical evidence from the defense during Morton's original, 1987 trial; evidence which could have proved Morton's innocence.
