    So does this have any affect on other people arrested by these same cops now that their credibility has been tainted?

    I'm wondering if this will be grounds for a retrial for others convicted by testimony offered by these particular police officers.

    I would imagine few retrials, if any, because it would have to be shown that any of the officers lied in those particular cases.

    I would not be surprised, however, to learn that they all had starting exploring the option.

    If testimony from any of these officers was material to other convictions, thinking that would be notable grounds for appeals. Just based on the lost credibility of that testimony.

    It might be, but I am not sure. This was not an area I have had to research. I would think, though, that there would have to be some legitimate and specific reasons to have doubted their testimonies in those particular cases, such that if a jury had had information regarding perjury in other situations it would have cast sufficient doubt on their veracity in those cases that a reasonable jury could not have found the defendant(s) guilty. But it is going to be a big hurdle to jump over even for them, I would think.
    Thanks from Blueneck
