Prosecutors Are So Dreeeeeeamy!

From the TDCAA forums, via Grits:

Hi, everyone. Some of you know me from my days prosecuting statewide for the AG's Office. I took a new position about year ago with the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel. Among other things, I am responsible for seeking compulsory discipline against any Texas attorney convicted of certain crimes; these include any felony of moral turpitude and all theft, barratry,and embezzlement cases. We do a pretty good job of learning of these cases and taking action, but as you can imagine, it is difficult to keep up with what every county in the state is doing. If you would, please contact me whenever you have convicted an attorney of one of these crimes, or even if you just know of someone who has been convicted. It will help us do our job better to make sure we don't have attorneys out there practicing who have no business doing such. If you're unsure whether a crime meets our definition please contact me and we can discuss it. Thanks so much! I still think prosecutors are the best bunch of people around and I am proud to know so many of you! Keep up the great work!

This explains why it's so hard to get a grievance sustained against a prosecutor: even when they lie, cheat, hide evidence, and send unethical letters to people represented by counsel, they're still the best bunch of people around.

And, really, can anyone expect a prosecutor groupie aggressively to enforce the disciplinary rules against the best bunch of people around?
