Mark Kleinschmidt, a lawyer at The Center for Death Penalty Litigation, just emailed to tell me Jerry Conner got a stay of execution to perform DNA testing! THIS IS HUGE! A manâ€™s life could be saved! BIG props to the lawyers working hard for little pay to make this world a better place. Yay!
Read more about this case in my post North Carolina Obstructs DNA Testing for Condemned Man and podcast Save Jerry Conner. Its possible that our grassroots blogging and podcasting mission could have helped bring the attention this case deserved. Iâ€™m not going to celebrate this fact just yet. The important thing is Mr. Conner gets another DNA test. More details soon.
