    "Hero" who committed suicide in prison was wrongfully charged

    According to this article, from the Guardian today, a man who the police described as a hero for exposing an attempted murder, but was later prosecuted and sent to prison for conspiracy should never have been imprisoned:

    The Guardian has seen one of the notes that Carter wrote before he took his own life. In it he blamed the police and the judiciary for his death, because "they put me in here". He wrote: "I mean, what person in their right mind puts someone in jail when they've stopped someone from being murdered? It just goes beyond logical reasoning." The letter ends: "I'm a dead convict, get me out of here." In a letter to Carter's family, the chief prosecutor for the West Midlands, David Blundell, disagreed with the initial charge of conspiracy to murder, saying: "A prosecution could not have been proved and ... there was insufficient evidence to justify charging your son."
