Talk show host Jeff Wagner (620 AM - Milwaukee) just named Paul the recipient of his #1 Weekly Right Stuff Award. These awards are designed to recognize people who do the right thing in the community.
Wagner said he was giving Paul the #1 award for his handling of the Ted Oswald case, noting that two big decisions went Paul's way this week:
-Federal judge Lynn Adelman soundly rejected Oswald's double jeopardy motion against Paul (as did a state judge earlier in the week). Adelman and the state judge both said it had no merit.
-The state appeals court ruled that the state can use Oswald's past testimony, overruling a circuit judge.
Amazingly, the Journal Sentinel didn't report either of these developments, even though the paper has written many stories about Oswald's double jeopardy allegations, now soundly rejected.
Note: The paper retracted its false reporting this week that stated that Adelman overturned the case on judicial and prosecutorial error. This is totally false, as the paper admitted in a correction that ran Thursday. No court has overturned the case on prosecutorial error of any fashion - there has never been such a finding. It was overturned on judicial error only.
