District Court Report of Ted Stevens Investigation

Source: U.S. District Court, via The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers

From the press release:

A two-year investigation of the prosecution of late Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens reveals that federal prosecutors and an FBI agent involved in the case deliberately and wrongfully attempted to convict a sitting U.S. senator on corruption charges they knew, or should have known, were unfounded in fact.

Among the report’s findings is evidence that:
  • The government encouraged and presented perjured testimony by its star witness, Bill Allen, and hid from the defense written evidence proving lied.
  • The government concealed evidence from the defense and the court that Allen had himself suborned perjury in an earlier case, when he encouraged a child prostitute to sign a false affidavit stating that she had not had sex with him when she was 15. Evidence of that earlier misconduct would have substantially damaged the Allen’s credibility.
  • The FBI repeatedly failed to memorialize in writing interviews with witnesses, who would have corroborated the testimony of the senator and his wife, to avoid creating evidence favorable to the defense.
  • Chief among the corruption allegations was a false charge that Stevens accepted free renovations to his home in Alaska, when in fact the government had written evidence of Stevens asking twice for the bill. Then the government introduced false business records to boost the value of the renovations, including evidence that its key witness disagreed with the government over the value of the construction work.
