Reade Seligmann's attorney, Jim Cooney, released two letters which were reported in the NewsObserver . One was sent to Jim Coman of the NC Special Prosecutions Division Office of Attorney General who investigated the False Accusations that led to the declaration of Innocence by NC Attorney General Roy Cooper. The second letter was sent to Craig S. Morford, Esq.,Acting US Deputy Attorney General, Christopher J. Christie, Esq. United States Attorney District of New Jersey, and Anna Mills Waggoner, Esq. United States Attorney Middle District of North Carolina. In that letter he states that AG Cooper has requested a criminal investigation into the events of the prosecution,
Liestoppers has stopped the clock. 131 Days, 11 Hours, 45 Minutes, 28 Seconds.
On behalf of Reade Seligmann and his family, I respectfully request that the Government of the United States grant the request of the North Carolina Attorney General and participate in a joint investigation into the events of this prosecution. It may very well be that, at the end of such an investigation, both the Government of the United States and the Attorney General conclude that no crimes (other than those for which punishment has already occurred) have been committed. if so. then my clients will know that this determination was the result of a process that was full, fair and complete, that the investigators had the tools that they needed to search for the truth in these cases, and that the final decision was the result of objective prosecutorial analysis unencumbered by any ethical constraints.
