Judges' comment: This piece required a lot of sources to trust the reporter to tell the story completely and accurately. It seems as if other lawyers and judges felt they couldn't do anything about the prosecutor's actions without taking the story to the court of public opinion. As the public defender noted later, the reporter's work will result in a better courthouse, which is watchdog journalism at its best.
