Description
Represented, pro bono, a young man on death row in Georgia, in a state habeas corpus petition after his conviction and sentence were affirmed. The U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari and remanded the case for reconsideration. The Georgia Supreme Court then vacated the death penalty and remanded for a new sentencing trial. After two more death sentences, both of which were also vacated by the Georgia Supreme Court, we obtained a unanimous jury recommendation for life in prison in a fourth jury trial, which was televised on Court TV.
