Former prosecutor sanctioned over trumped-up arrest

A longtime children’s advocate has been sanctioned by the State Bar for having a mother thrown in jail on trumped-up charges in order to prevent the woman from visiting her child, who had testified against the woman’s boyfriend in a sex-abuse trial.

Former Durham prosecutor Jan Paul, who is now a staff attorney for the General Assembly, didn’t contest the accusations against her, although she was represented at a bar hearing by a state-paid attorney at $250 an hour plus expenses, on a contract worth up to $10,000.
