Good to see he's out. Now he's in a different kind of prison known as the KCMO taxpayer gulag.

The prosecutor should serve 23 years

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

So a witness recanted. Why? What if they are lying? After all, they are trying to tell us they lied before...but NOW they are not. O.K., whatever.

Those guilty of falsely convicting him, the jury, prosecutor and judge should spend 20 years in jail. That should be the rule for making such huge mistakes.
