Have you heard about how Texas executed the wrong man (no, not Cameron Todd Willingham)?
Here’s a good read for all those interested in the American system of death penalty / capital punishment. It tells the story of Carlos DeLuna, wrongfully executed for murdering a woman named Wanda Lopez.
It was only after an investigatory team at the Columbia Law School looked into Carlos DeLuna’s case that it was discovered his claims that the authorities "had the wrong Carlos" were true.
Shows how important a good capital lawyer can be, and how vital Terry Lenamon’s work is to the system of justice.
