Proseuctor in Ted Stevens Case Commits Suicide
Nicholas Marsh, age 37, was one of the prosecutors in the Ted Stevens case. He and other prosecutors in the case have been under investigation for misconduct due to their withholding of evidence in the case. Yesterday, Marsh committed suicide.
Marsh's lawyer, Robert Luskin (yes, also Karl Rove's former lawyer), says the investigation was coming to a close and he would have been shocked had Marsh not been exonerated.
After Attorney General Eric Holder moved to dismiss Stevens' convictions, the Judge appointed Washington attorney Henry Schuelke to investigate the actions of the prosecutors. Marsh was transferred from the Public Integrity Section to the Office of International affairs during the investigation.
How sad that at age 37, Mr. Marsh thought suicide was his best option. I hope there was some other reason besides the potential fear of losing his job.
