    Nope. No immunity (which pertains to civil lawsuits, not criminal liability) for intentional, criminal acts.

    This day will live in infamy! I have never disagreed with you before.

    Feels odd....unsettling....lol.

    (I am referring to "1983" actions, not state law. But if Texas law attempted to insulate prosecutors from liability for criminal acts they committed on the job, that state law would be unconstitutional. IMO.)

    No man is above the law.

    This day will live in infamy! I have never disagreed with you before.

    Feels very odd....unsettling....lol.

    If the system "worked" the victim would not have spent 18 years in prison.

    Prosecutorial misconduct is not a criminal act, though it can and does trigger bar discipline and civil suits.

    Someone needs to file a civil suit in behalf of the falsely accused. Take the prosecutor to the cleaners.

    And the government as well ... the prosecutor probably does not have very deep pockets, and the longer one is imprisoned and denied his liberty (and, in practicality, his life), the more one should be entitled to.

    The state will pay, probably about $1 million a year for the 18 years he unjustly served. IN THEORY, he can join the prosecutor to that "case", but in reality, he will be asked to sign a release, promising not to press any claims against him.

    True, and in general, I approve of immunity for government employees.

    WTF would pass an elevator on inspection, in a skyscraper, if their own assets would be lost in the event of a tragedy?

    Few government workers could function as needed if they had liability for negligence.

    But this mofo was not negligent. His conduct was intentional and his ass needs to go to prison.

    Wake up the rest of the shitty prosecutors as to what can happen TO THEM if they abuse the powers of their office to this extent.

    Drop a body or two off the rocks, and all the prosecutors in America will step up their game.
