Slander is tough to prove - especially for public figures who are held to lower standards than normal citizens. If Henry sues that prosecutor, Henry's life is going to be an open book. Every bad thing he has done from adolesence to the present is fair game. Pretend you are on a jury hearing this case. You just said that you can't argue that Henry is a lowlife. You just made the defense's case. Truth is the ultimate defense. Hopefully Henry is getting his life back together but there's a reason why people were so ready to believe that he had failed that test. Just cause this guy jumped the gun doesn't erase all of Henry's past crimes.
On a related subject, how about Marvin callng out the police? You have to believe that there have been Bengals players who got into trouble and the cops let it slide because they didn't want them getting into trouble. If I were a Bengal, I'd make sure I bought unbreakable taillights.
