Turning up the heat with added perjury charges in Knox, Gilmore, Church cases

In this very interesting article ("Perjury charges common in retrials," 1/25/2004) from the Roanoke Times, the point is made that prosecutors like to add perjury charges to increase the pressure on defendants in cases that must be retried. The W.D. Va. prosecutors have added perjury charges against Dr. Cecil Knox, against fundraiser Richard Burrow, and against an alibi witness in the Gilmore-Church cases.
