More on the Earl Washington case

Peter Neufeld, the DNA expert lawyer, representing the wrongfully-convicted Earl Washington, argued before Judge Moon of the W.D. Va. that the records of Washington's case should be made public, to prevent similar mistakes in the future, according to this account ("Ex-Death Row Inmate Seeks Evidence Release," 2/21/2004) in the Washington Post, this AP story, and this story in the Richmond paper ("No charges near in crime tied to key case," 2/21/04).

The Washington case is the subject of a speaker scheduled to appear in Abingdon at the BLI conference in March.
