According to CNN breaking news, Boehner rules out any action in the House on immigration reform this year. 

"A significant bloc of House conservatives is adamantly opposed to any measure that provides a path to citizenship or legal status for the 11 million undocumented workers in the United States. So far, none of the House GOP proposals addresses that issue, but opponents worry that any negotiation with the Senate would ratchet up pressure on House Republicans to deal with questions of citizenship."

It is only the first time in history that a prosecutor will go to jail for prosecutorial misconduct causing an innocent person to be convicted.  Of course, it's a slap on the wrist (10 days) compared to the man who served 25 YEARS of his life behind bars.  

This was only possible because this particular court ordered that the prosecutor turn over all potential exculpatory evidence.  Since there was a direct order that was violated, the Judge could hold him in contempt.  Lesson of the day:  ask your Judge for a standing discovery order!
