Attorneys fall silent as news quote weighed

An issue that hinged on a media interview now has parties not wanting to talk about it. A federal judge is weighing whether prosecutors acted improperly by publicly questioning convictions in cases investigated by an indicted police officer. St. Louis attorney Chet Pleban, of Pleban & Associates, filed the motion to dismiss for prosecutorial misconduct after a newspaper article quoted former U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway and current St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce as saying that more than 1,000 convictions were put in doubt because of the indictment of Pleban's client, St. Louis Metropolitan Police Officer Bobby Lee Garrett.
