Default A lying DA

Has anyone dealt with a DA lying about the defendant saying something that he did not? The DA in my husbands made up something that could get my husband in to trouble and im so worried. My husband isn't he says he knows he didn't say it and so does the other defendant's but im worried about what it will look like on his paperwork. Help??

Yes, the US Attorney did that with me. He said I started a treatment program only after I was charged with the crime. The truth was, I started it two years prior. He tried to paint a different (and inaccurate) picture of me in front of the judge. And get this. I paid off over $78k restitution in 2 years - and he made that sound like a negative. Prosecutors and USAís are all scum. They lie to get ahead. Itís just sorry they throw people under the bus when in order to get ahead.

Yes and it's so fucked up. By accusing my husband of that he is putting his life in danger how can he knowingly do that to someone.

Without knowing what the DA said itís kind of hard to determine potential motive or why the DA might have said it.

But that doesnít tell me what it was. Also a DA is legally allowed to present a theory of the case. He has to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt, yes, but the DA wasnít there so he has to build a theory. True or not. Thatís how it works. Unfortunately.

The DA said that during an interview my husband said one of the defendants was at the scene. Pretty much making him out to be a snitch

His information could come from another person who actually ratted. I donít claim to be an expert on how criminal groups deal with these things, but my understanding is that this stuff generally gets sorted out.

It isn't in trial, so yeah, misstatements are permitted in an attempt to extract confessions. Courts have approved of the notion...

What you are saying is someone fell for the old line " So and so said this about you or someone else" Then the person being interviewed sang like a bird. Oldest trick in the damn book. To find the weakest link and work on them. Promise them things you can not do but you still obtain the information you need.
This type of stuff had been going on for years. It called trying to talk your way out of jail. Never works but people still try to use it. If a defendant keeps their mouth shut it makes the police and the DA job that much harder. Never talk with the police without counsel. Reason being everything you say even pre-Miranda , will some how be used against you. By the time they Mirandize
you. More then likely you have already said enough to incriminate yourself with all of the other information they have gathered

In my friends case, the D.A lied mainly because he got lies from the police that interrogated her. There were lots of assumptions and innuendo put in the police report that just was accepted as fact. They had just taken her children two hours before, and she was in a state of shock when she went to talk with the police. They claimed she acted like she wasn't being truthful with them because she acted odd and didn't tell them what they wanted to hear. She couldn't think straight because she was in shock, and she didn't have anything to tell them anyway because she never saw anything. It's very disturbing how something like that can just get out of control i no time at all.

As much as I'm thankful my kids are learning algebra, geography and art, I think our kids in todays society would benefit much more if they had to take classes on warning them against the tactics of the justice system and police. Including the D.A

Absolutely. My kids will know that the police are not your friends.

While they may not be 'your friend,' members of the various law enforcement agencies are ALSO not 'your enemy.' I can only hope you teach that to your children lest you (and them) be part of the problem, not the solution.

DA's can be worse than a dirty lawyer. Many times I have been in a court room thinking that the DA was seriously talking about another case until I heard the name.
