Should Prosecutors Who Withhold Exculpatory Evidence Face Criminal Charges?

Actually I think this is an easy call: Yes.

I'm a law and order type guy. I'm utterly indifferent to the cries of civil libertarians about the state treading "rights" of criminals. That said, this is supposed to be about justice. Convicting the wrong man only serves the interests of careerist prosecutors. To do so knowingly ought to be more than enough to send you to prison.
