More on the Coleman DNA results...

Living and attending law school in Grundy, Virginia, I've heard a LOT about the Roger Keith Coleman execution and subsequent debate as to his self-proclaimed innocence. With the recent release of the new DNA testing results, the area is again abuzz with talk of the case. I've attached a link to the local (weekly) Grundy paper's account of the trial and its aftermath- as told by those who were involved in the case. Tom Scott, one of the former prosecutors in the case (and now in private practice and an associate law professor) gives an interesting insider's view. Other interviews include family members of both convict and victim. This was the last murder in the little mountain town of Grundy before the law school massacre in January, 2002 that left three people wounded and three others dead.

Ah, an ASL man.

I've not been paying attention.
