RE: Hal Hebert
I received a handbill recently which referred to the case of Hal Herbert. Years ago I knew Mr. Herbert well, and I was astonished when he was charged and convicted at trial in 2003. But I assumed the newspaper accounts of the proceedings were accurate and the evidence they referred to was true.
Now I have to say that I am very startled by the possibility that Mr. Herbert’s trial was dependent on false evidence that may have been known to be false at the time it was presented against him. if his current allegations are true then certainly it is incumbent on you to see that he gets an immediate and fair hearing.
Additionally, I feel uneasy about the ethics of the chief Deputy prosecutor who resigned from a US attorney nomination. However, if Mr. Herbert’s assertions are not true, I would appreciate hearing from you at your convenience.
