Ethics problem: Former Texas prosecutor disbarred for creating false testimony.

A former prosecutor who used false testimony and withheld evidence to send a now-exonerated man to Texas' death row has lost an appeal to overturn his disbarment.
The Dallas Morning News ( http://bit.ly/1TPB1fq ) reports that the Board of Disciplinary Appeals on Monday upheld the decision of the State Bar of Texas to disbar Charles Sebesta. The board's decision is final.

In case you were wondering, yeah, it's illegal, and even more: prosecutors are supposed to held to a higher standard as they often have access to information that others do not.
