Fed Prosecutor in Ted Stevens Case Commits Suicide

WASHINGTON — One of the federal prosecutors in the botched Sen. Ted Stevens public corruption case  in Washington committed suicide over the weekend, NPR reported.

Carrie Johnson of NPR reported that that prosecutor Nick Marsh took his own life.

Marsh was one of the prosecutors in the Stevens case that imploded after prosecutors won a conviction. The Attorney General’s Office dismissed the case because of concerns about prosecutorial misconduct.  The prosecution failed to turn over certain evidence.

Subsequently, the judge in the case appointed a special prosecutor to determine whether the government broke the law and the Justice Department’s Professional Responsibility launched its own probe, NPR reported.

NPR reported that the special prosecutor’s report is expected in a few weeks, but Marsh’s lawyer, Bob Luskin, said he didn’t think that Marsh was going to be charged.

Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal Division released this statement:

“Our deepest sympathies go out to Nick’s family and friends on this sad day. The Department of Justice is a community, and today our community is mourning the loss of this dedicated young attorney.”
