Too Much Evidence Prompts Dismissal of Prescription Drug Case

Is it possible to have too much evidence against someone?

It appears so after a federal judge in Iowa dropped a case involving the nation’s largest prosecution of Internet pharmacies, the Associated Press reports.

The evidence against former Miami doctor, Armando Angulo, included more than 400,000 documents and two terabytes of electronic data, taking up 5% of the DEA’s worldwide electronic storage, according to Newsday.

Angulo fled to his native Panama, which does not extradite its own citizens. So given that he’s never likely to come back to the U.S., and the issue of maintaining all the documents, the prosecutors asked the to dismiss the case so the evidence can be deleted or destroyed, AP reported.
