Congratulations to Illuzzi . She did it the fair way and didn't hide exculpatory evidence. Weinstein, Hillary's pal, didn't get away with it and that is a good thing.

"The United States Attorney is the representative not of an ordinary party to a controversy, but of a sovereignty whose obligation to govern impartially is as compelling as its obligation to govern at all; and whose interest, therefore, in a criminal prosecution is not that it shall win a case, but that justice shall be done. As such, he is in a peculiar and very definite sense the servant of the law, the twofold aim of which is that guilt shall not escape or innocence suffer. He may prosecute with earnestness and vigor-- indeed, he should do so. But, while he may strike hard blows, he is not at liberty to strike foul ones. It is as much his duty to refrain from improper methods calculated to produce a wrongful conviction as it is to use every legitimate means to bring about a just one."

295 U.S. 78 (1935)

Fred, she apparently did a good job. It was especially helpful, I think, to have a woman handle the prosecution given the nature of the subject matter involved, and the witnesses who would need to be questioned in court. BTW, she is a Republican who works for a Democratic District Attorney.

"The conviction starkly underscores that Me Too is also a conviction of Hollywood, as the industry of incessant moralizing spent years whispering privately about the producer out of one side of its mouth while publicly offering praise from the other."

Absolutely, Fred. They are a bunch of hypocrites. But we already knew that.
