    It is great news that official sanction might actually come down on prosecutorial misconduct.

    And … is "criminal libel" even a thing in this country? I thought that was a nastiness restricted to the UK.

    What are the likely sanctions for the prosecutor? Slap on the wrist? Or something more serious?

    And here I am fresh from Greenfield's Simple Justice blawg, having left a fresh and steaming comment essentially ranting about how prosecutors can behave badly regardless of whether the behaviour is a part of their official duties or not, and get away with it scot-free.

    I don't understand – I don't have the case reference, but I distinctly remember a prosecutor successfully claiming immunity in response to a lawsuit filed because that prosecutor framed the defendant with knowingly false evidence. That's not part of their job at all – discretionary or otherwise.

    This is all confusing to the average Joe.

    Criminal libel? I'm horrified to discover that there is such a thing.
