Ex-prosecutor Anderson begins 10 day jail sentence

Posted: Updated:

Ex-prosecutor Ken Anderson, who won a conviction that sent an innocent man to prison, turned himself in to authorities Wednesday to begin his 10 day jail sentence.

Anderson faced up to 10 years in prison if convicted of tampering with evidence in the 1987 murder trial of Michael Morton.

On Friday, Anderson accepted a deal and agreed to serve 10 days in jail and complete 500 hours of community service. He was also disbarred and fined $500.
