A Santa Clara County, Calif., Superior Court judge cited “grossly shocking” prosecutorial conduct in dismissing a child sexual assault case Wednesday.

In a written order (pdf), Judge Andrea Bryan described a “rare and concerning case of egregious prosecutorial misconduct” following a reversal for a Brady violation in defendant Augustine Uribe’s case. She added that Deputy District Attorney Troy Benson’s “numerous acts of misconduct, culminating in his false testimony in this proceeding, strikes at the foundation of our legal system and is so grossly shocking and outrageous that it offends the universal sense of justice to allow prosecution in this matter to proceed.”
