Elect a new county attorney | Letters to the Editor
Campbell County District Attorney Mitch Damsky at public re-election forums waved Tyler Martinson’s wrongful conviction for child abuse on the air like it was a trophy. The very unfortunate baby involved was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). Yet despite the medical evidence, now from three experts, Damsky chose to press ahead with 10 of the first 31 felony charges against Tyler. EDS, a genetic disease of connective tissue, with DNA markers, can make bones fragile – allowing even minor movements, such as diaper changes, to cause major bone fractures. Despite this, the jury found Tyler guilty of six LESSER felony counts of “reckless” and not “intentional” abuse.
It’s important to note that many, many prosecutors across the country, most recently in Cheyenne, drop all abuse charges after learning of an EDS diagnosis…not Damsky…because he needed help. an election year victory, a “Hail Mary”. at the continued expense of taxpayers’ money and the expense of an innocent man.
