Description

The American Lawyer investigates the case of Lloyd Schlup, a Missouri prisoner on death row for the stabbing murder of a fellow inmate. Even though several witnesses insist another man committed the murder and prison cameras suggest it would have been virtually impossible for Schlup to be at the scene of the crime at the time of the murder, the Supreme Court is expected to allow the execution to proceed. Supreme Court officials are becoming increasingly hostile to retrying cases based upon new evidence - even if that means the death of wrongly-convicted prisoners. (Dec. 1994)
