STORY: "Anderson returns to court in Morton case," by reporter Chuck Lindell, published by the American-Statesman on November 7, 2013.

GIST: "Former Williamson County prosecutor Ken Anderson faces jail time and the loss of his law license when he appears in court Friday afternoon to resolve criminal charges and a civil lawsuit arising from his late-1980s prosecution of Michael Morton. The Georgetown hearing is a rare combination of three separate but related legal issues based on allegations that Anderson hid favorable evidence to secure Morton’s 1987 conviction for a murder he did not commit."

See KENS5 story: "EX-D.A. who prosecuted innocent man back in court."... "While previously serving as Williamson County district attorney, Anderson helped convict Michael Morton, who was wrongfully imprisoned for nearly 25 years for his wife's 1986 slaying. DNA evidence exonerated Morton in 2011. In April, a special court of inquiry determined that Anderson intentionally concealed evidence favorable to Morton's defense. Anderson faces charges of criminal contempt of court and evidence and records tampering. He also faces possible disbarment by the State Bar of Texas."
