It will now be up to the Tarrant County judge to decide whether or not former Williamson County District Attorney Ken Anderson should be punished for his part in the wrongful murder conviction of Michael Morton in 1987. Anderson was the last person to testify in the proceedings, and he spent the better part of six hours on the stand.
Anderson choked back tears as he recalled a prosecution that wrongfully sent a Morton to prison for 25 years. He called the case his "worst nightmare."
Anderson is now a judge in Georgetown. He is accused of withholding evidence indicating Morton's innocence during the original trial.
Anderson said he did nothing wrong. He said the office he "ran was professional, it was competent." Then, his voice cracking, Anderson added, "We got it right as much as we humanly could."
It could take the judge several weeks to render a decision.
