Legion, you're talking out of your ass because you didn't read the article.

The prosecution was found to be doing so much lying and committing crimes in the scope of the case, that the judge declared a mistrial.

Prosecution then wanted to try the case again. Another judge reviewed this request and said, correctly, that in cases of extreme mischief by the prosecution (as opposed to the jury just not being able to come to a verdict for example), a mistrial is equivalent to a permanent dismissal.

Both judges made the right call. You can't have the prosecution lying and committing crimes during the prosecution of a case. It undermines the entire system. If I was judge I'd also have censored the prosecution and triggered review of their law licenses based on their proven misconduct. So they got off easy.

Probably these guys would have been convicted in trial. But prosecution fucked that up.

I think you mean "censured" not "censored".
