Outgoing DA Craig Watkins wins appeal in high-profile legal dispute
Russell Wilson, who represented the DA’s office in the case, emphasized the importance of equality in the justice system. He said Hill should have to go through the legal process just as other well-off defendants have, citing Dallas Cowboy Josh Brentand former NFL player O.J. Simpson as examples.
“That’s all this case has been about: equal treatment and our refusal to allow a special set of rules for any particular class of folks,” he said. “Win, lose or draw, the laws are for everybody and the process is the same.”
