"The time there there have been cases that we've heard of where somebody years after the fact comes forward and says i can't take it anymore i lied and maybe there's a new trial or maybe somebody is exonerated based on that this cases a little different because the lie and the knowledge of the lie happened within the same trial before the jury was even sent back for deliberations yeah that's right a anybody could have cured at the defence tried right with their witness but prosecutors were silent and there is a string of cases from the us supreme court that says prosecutor savon affirmative obligate asian to correct a government witness when the witnesses made a false statement that didn't happen and then the appellate court the federal appeals court essentially excuse the prosecutor you know what's also missing from this equation is the judge the judge knew that this witness said a said something completely different uh in the second trial then what she had testify fi to the first time around and the judge was silent about it you would think at some point somebody would have chimed in before the deliberations began to say listen we wanna clarify things for you and to me it eight speaks to the imbalance that takes place in a criminal trial prosecutors i think at far more of the benefit of the doubt then the defence even though the law says that it's the defendants that are supposed to get the benefit of reasonable doubt well what have the prosecutors in this case said about their own conduct in whether they acted appropriately when brooklyn irby's testimony was was known to not be true well they have defended themselves they've they've said look it came out any way the fact that there were questions about the accuracy of this testimony were raised by the defense in a timely fashion there was a witness a basically ah a law enforcement official who came to the stand and said yeah a brooklyn urbi has this a problem in this case and that was enough the dow is enough to cure whatever failings the prosecutors had made a trial.
