It seems appropriate to bring everyone up to the minute about the case.
THE KEY PLAYERS: Attorney Robert Boyle, Investigator Doug Walters, Rebecca Freedman and Glenn Garber of The Exoneration Initiative.
THE HEARING: Since July 15, 2013, a "motion hearing" for the case of Shane Watson has been heard in courtroom 540 of Bronx Criminal Court before Judge Richard Price. The purpose of the hearing is to present NEW evidence to the court in the hope of Judge Price deciding to grant a new trial for Shane. NEW evidence is defined as evidence we have gathered (due to the tireless efforts of Doug Walters, primarily) which was NOT presented at Shane's 1993 trial.
WHAT'S NEXT? The motion hearing will resume on Monday, August 26, 2013 @ 10 AM before Judge Price. The hearing is expected to be concluded that week, followed by Judge Price's decision.
WHAT CAN I DO? Several things: attend the hearing, write to Shane, contribute to the Opus 30 Mission on this blog, encourage others to contribute, contact interested media outlets in order to publicize the case.
