Fillmore Spencer is proud to acknowledge our associate, Geidy Achecar, for the honor of being named to Utah County District Attorney David Leavitt’s Conviction Integrity Commission.
Geidy and the other members of the nine person panel will review cases prosecuted by the Utah County DA’s office and make recommendations to DA Leavitt. If Leavitt agrees that the person was factually innocent, or that there were procedural errors, he will vacate the conviction. The board will also consider allegations of prosecutorial misconduct that will be reviewed against internal policy and then referred to the Utah State Bar if they rise to the level of ethics violations.
This is both a great honor, and a major commitment that Geidy is making to donate her time and talents to keep our Utah County legal system honest and transparent. Thank you Geidy!
