    S2 E14: The Decision

    On Friday, June 21, after months of deliberation, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its opinion in the Curtis Flowers case. In a 7-2 ruling, the justices threw out the conviction from his sixth trial, in 2010. The decision of what happens next -- whether to release Flowers or begin a seventh trial -- now lies with the same prosecutor who's pursued him from the beginning: Doug Evans.

Real Justice

A very interesting podcast series- it’s hard to understand or accept that miscarriages of justice can perpetuate because of the misconduct of the justice system. Thankfully Madeleine and the team of investigative journalists took it upon themselves to review the evidence and highlight the discrepancies in the DA prosecution case. I do hope that those families who have suffered losses and the unimaginable trauma over many years eventually get some closure, but perusing an obviously innocent man is not right either. There appears to be a more likely suspect indicated by the investigators in this podcast- I hope this angle is investigated with equal vigour by the new DA.
