Greeting you on your return from an out-of-town business trip, your next-door neighbor complains that your teenage son nearly struck her dog early the previous afternoon in your new pickup, which you have expressly forbidden the boy to drive.
Your son vehemently denies borrowing the truck, but you ground him anyway and order him to spend the weekend resealing your deck without fee.
A few hours later, your son's basketball coach and his assistant stop by to protest that your son spent the previous afternoon and evening at an away basketball game, precluding any possibility that he could have been using your truck at the same time.
Should you A) apologize to your son and rescind his punishment? B) explain that you're now uncertain about his guilt and offer to pay him for resealing your deck? Or C) lock them in a closet until your son has finished the free resealing job?
Protecting jurors from the truth
If you chose C), you just might have what it takes to work for Oakland County Prosecutor Dave Gorcyca, who apparently will stop at nothing to avoid admitting that his office may have put an innocent man behind bars.When we last encountered Gorcyca, he was desperately trying to block a new trial for former kindergarten teacher James Perry, whom the Oakland prosecutor accused of sexually assaulting two young boys in an empty Oak Park elementary school classroom.

David Gorcyca, Oakland's cowardly prosecutor
This is a very interesting piece I found in today's Detroit Free Press. David Gorcyca is under investigation for his possible prosecutorial malfeasance involved in the James Perry case. No wonder he isn't running for re-election.
