Ober praise.

A great deal has been written about the recent release of yet another innocent person from Florida's prisons, but we have not heard all that much about the conduct of State Attorney Mark Ober and his staff.

I write to thank Ober and the people of his office who worked in a cooperative and constructive way with the people who were seeking to establish Alan Crotzer's claim of innocence.

It might seem like a basic duty of the state attorney to help identify a bona fide claim of innocence but, sadly, not all prosecutors adhere to their duty in the way that Ober and his staff have done in the Crotzer case.

We owe Ober thanks for his humility and for his willingness to take an honest look at the evidence that sent an innocent citizen to prison.
