Weyhrauch Attorneys Ask for Evidence of Prosecutorial Misconduct

Associated Press

Attorneys for former Alaska lawmaker Bruce Weyhrauch are asking a federal judge for access to evidence they contend shows prosecutorial misconduct. His attorneys say they have an obligation to report misconduct to the Alaska Bar Association.

Thursday’s filing seeks permission to send the bar evidence now under seal. It doesn’t specify which prosecutors Weyhrauch’s attorneys believe acted inappropriately.

The government dropped a federal case against Weyhrauch under a deal that had him pleading to a state misdemeanor count. Weyhrauch vigorously denied the federal charges against him, and one of his attorneys said prosecutors withheld evidence in his case.
