The subversion of justice by attempting to keep the truth from the public, another unconscionable act revealed! A spokesman for the Supreme Court said this week that the affidavit was provided "inadvertently" and that, even now, the document remains sealed. We now unseal the infamous 10-page affidavit the court clerk provided to Mara Leveritt. The reason for the judge's order is obvious: Jason and Damien were denied their constitutional right to a fair trial when the jury foreman had dozens of conversations with this lawyer -- often regarding Jessie's inadmissible "confession"-- while their trial was in progress. The state of Arkansas must do the right thing and either retry the West Memphis 3 now or set them free.
For those of you following the West Memphis Three (Google it) case, this is a hugely important document. In a good world, it would absolutely guarantee those three guys a new trial. In the dirty south, though, who knows. Most officials down there seem to be sticking with the "Devil worshipers is devil worshipers" approach to justice.
