Subject: Wrongful Convictions
Source: The Nation
Date: 16-Jul


The Nation reports on the case of Tina Rodriguez wrongfully convicted of intentionally killing one of her children by starvation. The story exposes the weaknesses of Texas criminal justice system, and points to the possibility that the baby boy "may have died of something more are than starvation: a genetic defect that prevented him from metabolizing the milk he drank." The article depicts the recklessness of the paid lawyers hired by the Rodriguez family, and follows the difficult fate of Tina Rodriguez in her marriage and trial.
