A North Carolina prosecutor admitted in court that critical evidence had been withheld in the trial of a man now on death row, and a new trial has been ordered. Union County District Attorney Kenneth Honeycutt said the defendant and his trial lawyers were not told about a federal immunity deal struck with the state’s star witness, despite the judge’s order that all favors and deals be disclosed. The prosecutor said he wasn’t aware of the deal until two years after the defendant was placed on death row. Death penalty opponents hope the case will boost their pleas for a moratorium on executions in the state … A 14-year-old boy whose mother was killed by his father is going to trial to sever paternal ties, after a family court judge in Ohio reversed his own earlier decision and agreed to let the case proceed. If successful, Patrick Holland would become the first child in the United States to divorce a parent. Patrick, who was 8 at the time of his mother’s death, discovered her body after the murder. The father is serving a life sentence in prison, but wants access to information about Patrick’s life … A former New Orleans judge has been sentenced to 3 years, 10 months in federal prison — four months longer than his plea bargain called for — in a case where he admitted plotting to frame an FBI informant. Ronald Bodenheimer pleaded guilty to mail fraud and drug charges. Investigators said an associate of the former judge was caught trying to plant a narcotic in the FBI informant’s vehicle. Prosecutors originally agreed to a 3 1/2-year sentence, saying that could be reduced if Bodenheimer gave “substantial cooperation” in the investigation … An attorney has pleaded guilty to drug possession in a deal over charges that he was part of a New York meth-distribution ring. Robert Moran Jr. may face anywhere from 8 to 25 years in prison. Investigators said they found meth valued at about $50,000, cash, weapons, computers and vehicles during a raid that focused on Moran and others.
