New Chandra Levy Trial Hopes To Frame Illegal Immigrant
Prosecutors are going to "retry" the horrible Chandra Levy murder case, and this time they are sure that they will convict Ingmar Guandique, who is from El Salvador so convict him already! This is a textbook "intern-had-sex-with-a-Congressman-and-then-was-murdered-by-an-illegal-brown-person" case, and the evidence is overwhelming:
In recent days, prosecutors further acknowledged that detectives in 2004 and 2005 wrote false pen-pal letters to Guandique in hopes he'd write back and implicate himself. Sonenberg charged Thursday that the "unethical" letters showed prosecutors feared their case "wasn't sufficiently strong" at the time.
Prosecutors defend the tactic, which apparently was undertaken by a different law enforcement team. In 2007, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier assigned a new team of detectives to the case, and they again turned their focus to Guandique.
No DNA evidence links Guandique to Levy's skeletal remains or evidence found nearby. Instead, prosecutors are primarily relying on Guandique's alleged confessions to fellow inmates. These confessions are both vivid and inconsistent.
Remember, jury: He's brown.
