The Kellett case goes to the Maine Supreme Judical Court

In 2011, SAVE filed a 9-page ethics complaint with the Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar alleging numerous instances of prosecutor misconduct by Hancock County prosecutor Mary N. Kellett.

Now, the state ethics board has issued a report concluding that Kellett did, in fact, engage in multiple counts of prosecutorial misconduct arising from the 2009 assault trial of Vladek Filler.

The ethical violations include ignoring a court order, misleading members of a jury, evidence suppression, and indulging in "conduct unworthy of an attorney."

The report petitions the Maine Supreme Judicial Board to impose "appropriate disciplinary sanction" on assistant district attorney Kellett. We agree, and we bet you do too.

For Vladek, and for every person falsely accused, please call the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. Tell them that you want to make sure that justice is done with Kellett.

Let's do our part to restore prosecutor integrity.
