Michael Morton served 25 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, the murder of his wife. Meanwhile, Ken Anderson, the former prosecutor who convicted Morton, had a successful career as a district attorney and now as a judge. Judge Anderson now faces disbarment, however, due to allegations that he intentionally withheld evidence from Morton that could have prevented the innocent man from spending most of his adult life behind bars.
