We have just been informed that the Bar Panel for the Main Board of Overseers of the Bar have sent the recommendation to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court that Hancock Country Prosecutor Mary Kellett have her license to practice law suspended for prosecutorial misconduct.
The panel found Kellett, in her prosecution of Vladek Filler, guilty of “failing to make timely disclosure of the existence of evidence, suppressing evidence, trying to mislead a jury, failing to employ reasonable skill and care, engaging in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice and engaging in conduct unworthy of an attorney.”
This is according to a just released announcement by the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.
The ruling means that Kellett will face yet another hearing at the Supreme Judicial Court to determine what amounts to the future of her legal career.
More details on this will be made available as they come in. In the meantime, we are cracking open a cold one here.
Score one for justice, for a change.
