As you know, our recent application to the Appellate Court was denied, once again defying logic and common sense.
As of this writing, Shane has been in prison for 21 years and 169 days. That's a long time to spend in a cage for a crime that he did not commit.
Here is what our attorney Robert Boyle wrote to me yesterday:
Since (Shane) already has been to federal court he needs the permission of the US Court of Appeals to file a second habeas corpus petition. That would have to go to the federal Court of Appeals. If they then give permission, he can file a second habeas petition. The application to the Court of Appeals must convince them that the case has merit. It is an extremely difficult standard to meet.
We are planning to go forward with this course of action.
Thank you for your interest in Shane's case.
