Where is the outrage at the prosecutors to blame for wrongly convicting Ricky Kidd in 1996.
Details please KC Star. Was Peter Baker and/or Mikey Sanders involved in corrupt prosecution?
Sanders was only an assistant JaCo prosecutor, so he cannot claim all the credit for this false prosecution.
Does the Star protect and "comfort the comfortable while afflicting the afflicted."

The prosecutors did not convict Ricky Kidd, a jury did.
