Tuesday’s Quick Clicks…

  • Innocence Project co-founder Barry Scheck takes the stage with Miss America to advocate for prison reform in the U.S.
  • North Carolina’s president of NAACP will speak at rally for the Wilmington 10
  • Mark Alan Norwood of Texas, who is charged for the same murder that wrongfully sent Michael Morton to prison, has his trial moved to a new county
  • California exoneree Brian Banks files for his state statutory compensation of $100 per day of wrongful conviction
  • Supporters of Kirstin Blaise Labato are seeking signatures petitioning the District Attorney to take a different stance than his predecessors and allow DNA testing on evidence, which may shed new light on the case. Jason Kreag, an attorney with the Innocence Project, frames the issue in a letter to District Attorney Steven Wolfson. “My question is simple: what do you have to lose by consenting to testing? If the results confirm Ms. Labato’s involvement in the murder, then that would effectively end the case, and Ms. Labato’s conviction would stand. . . But if the testing identified someone other than Ms. Labato as the murderer, then that result could not only serve as compelling evidence of Ms. Labato’s innocence but also bring the true perpetrator to justice.”
