Defending Senator Stevens: Fairness in Prosecuting the Law

To kick of the spring semester, we teamed up with the Federalist Society and invited Robert Cary '90, a partner at Williams and Connolly, to speak to the law school about fairness in prosecuting the law. In 2008, Cary served as counsel to Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska and defended him against charges of corruption. Though the jury found Senator Stevens guilty of the charges, a Justice Department probe uncovered that the prosecution had systematically concealed evidence that would have corroborated the senator's defense, and the indictment was dismissed.
