Judge Dismisses Murder Charges Against Marine Widow

by Allison Hoffman - April 18th, 2008 -

Prosecutors who were preparing for Cynthia Sommer's second trial found that previously untested samples of Marine Sgt. Todd Sommer's tissue showed no arsenic. Earlier tests of his liver, presented at the woman's first trial, found levels 1,020 times above normal.

A recently retained government expert speculated that the earlier samples were contaminated, prosecutors wrote in a motion filed in San Diego Superior Court. The expert said he found the initial results "very puzzling" and "physiologically improbable."

Our incompetent court system continues to prove itself incapable of determining guilt or innocence. Repeatedly, the incompetent process of admitting evidence frees the guilty and convicts the innocent. This is one more case where an innocent person spent years of her life, in jail, for the crime of being an American at a time when judges have destroyed our courts and our society.
