HEARING TO RESUME MONDAY

The motion hearing will enter what will most likely be the final segment on Monday, August 26, @ 10 AM in courtroom 540 before Judge Price, Bronx Criminal Court, 265 E. 161 Street, Bronx.

This is a critical phase in Shane's case. At the conclusion of the hearing, Judge Price will set a date for oral arguments to be heard from the DA's office and from our attorney, Robert Boyle. Following this, Judge Price will decide whether Shane receives a new trial or not.

Tonight I watched a very powerful documentary titled WEST OF MEMPHIS which told the story of Damien Wayne Echols, Jessie Misskelley and Jason Baldwin ("The West Memphis Three") who were wrongfully convicted of a triple homicide and served 18 years in prison before being released. The similarities between this story and Shane's are striking: a rush to judgement on the part of a biased DA, a total lack of investigative work following the crimes, blatant lying and misleading of witnesses on the part of the prosecutor, etc., etc. I urge you to watch this compelling and disturbing film, and as always, I urge you to read Doug Walters' summary of Shane's case.
