Re: “Original intent

Looking at this case over the last decade and a half, I have to ask what is wrong with the tax paying citizens of Arkansas? Every counter-measure by the prosecution in this case is costing the tax payers a great deal of money. Why isn't anyone (besides Ms. Leveritt) mounting wholesale criticism of the state attorney general's office's continual investment in a prosecution that is so obviously flawed, it is a black eye to the state of Arkansas? These ludicrous roadblocks to achieving justice are expensive. And I read that the state will retry these defendant's if they are granted a retrial. Another waste of the tax payer's money. How they ever made it to trial in the first place is a mystery. There was and is absolutely no evidence of any kind against these three; nothing with which to present a case. Up here in the Northeast, this would never have happened. The rest of the world is watching and frankly, Arkansas, you are making the U.S. justice system really look bad.

Re: “Original intent

PBHOGG is actually correct. Jessie did "re-confess" post-conviction when prosecutors approached him (without his attorney's knowledge) about testifying against Damien and Jason. Taken out of context, this does seem damaging but one needs to understand what was happening to this child with a 72 IQ. The prosecutors hounded him without benefit of counsel and when his attorney found out, he talked with Jessie and Jessie recanted his confessions completely and refused to testify against Damien and Jason. Coerced confessions are much more common than people would believe.
