Recently, Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper admitted to making an error. Allegedly, the prosecutor filed murder and related criminal charges last week against a widow in Farmington Hills following the death of her husband.
Charges were filed last Tuesday against 46 year old Laura Johnson after her husband died during a boating accident. Cooper recently told a news source that she has "egg" on her face after dropping the charges against the widow.
Copper had Johnson released from jail 20 minutes after a medical examiner ruled that her husband, Lloyd Johnson, died due to an unhealed wound from a boating accident. The medical examiner said the death was "an act of contrition."
Defending herself, Cooper said it is not unusual to obtain a warrant without a completed autopsy and she has plans to have experts review the autopsy results and hospital records.
