MIAMI (AP) - Defense attorneys have asked for a mistrial in the case of a South Florida woman accused of killing a foster child who was in her care. A judge did not immediately rule.
The mistrial motion Tuesday came after news surfaced that prosecutor Joshua Weintraub's law license had been temporarily suspended over a failure to meet continuing legal education requirements. He was reinstated Tuesday after showing the requirements were met.
The issue surfaced when a Miami Herald reader posted a comment on the paper's web site.
Weintraub gave the opening statement in the trial of 66-year-old Geralyn Graham in the slaying of foster child Rilya Wilson. The girl disappeared over a decade ago and her body has never been found. The case led to a shakeup at Florida's child welfare agency.
