Brickbat: Should I Not Have Done That?


Dmitriy Shironosov

Federal prosecutor Erin Tomasic has resigned after admitting she listened to recordings made of conversations between inmates at Leavenworth Detention Center and their attorneys that were made without the knowledge of either the prisoners or their attorneys. Tomasic had previously told the judge handling an investigation of the recordings that she had not listened to them. Many of the inmates at the detention center are awaiting trial and have not been convicted of any crime.
