Defense attorneys for a man facing the death penalty in the state's massive gang racketeering case say the Hamilton County District Attorney's Office needs to be disqualified from the prosecution, The Times Free Press reports. Citing an "appearance of impropriety," attorneys Steven Moore and Fisher Wise argued that District Attorney General Neal Pinkston's office needs to be taken off the case because a former defense attorney who previously represented two of the defendants became a prosecutor for Pinkston last fall. Criminal Court Judge Tom Greenholtz said he will consider the issue further and release an order at a later date.
