DOJ Prosecutors Held In Contempt

According to this BLT report, prosecutors in the trial of Sen. Stevens were held in contempt of court.

The contempt finding was directed at William Welch II, chief of DOJ’s Public Integrity Section; Brenda Morris, principal deputy chief of the section and lead prosecutor in the case; trial attorney Kevin Driscoll; and Patricia Stemler, chief of the Criminal Division’s Appellate Section.

The contempt holding is the latest chapter in the Public Integrity Section’s misadventure in the case. [Judge] Sullivan has lambasted prosecutors for a number of violations related to case evidence, witnesses, and a whistleblower complaint filed by an FBI agent accusing prosecutors and another agent of misconduct.
