Wrongful conviction caused by Cortni

...Rand forwarded paperwork to the DA's special
operations division for a possible perjury charge against
Cortni. Attorneys there declined to prosecute.

"Perjury is a hard thing to prove," said Julie Korsmeyer,
division chief. "It's not just whether someone has told a lie
or not. There has to be intent."
