Plagiarism no big deal to Mark Cunningham

Mark Cunningham, expert witness on behalf of Brian Nichols, doesn't think plagiarism is a big deal. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote:

Cunningham was caught by surprise when he learned from the prosecution that Nichols had plagiarized chunks of a college paper on which he had based part of his opinion. The psychologist contended the plagiarism was not important.

When Hill suggested that the plagiarism showed the “seeds of deception,” Cunningham dismissed the suggestion by saying plagiarism was common among college students.

"That does not point to very much about their character," he said.
