Clinton’s legal team has recently asked the Court of Criminal Appeals in Texas to throw out Clinton’s entire conviction and death sentence because for years, the prosecutor in Clinton’s case has secretly worked as a legal advisor for the judge presiding over Clinton’s case. The prosecutor worked on Clinton’s case from both sides. This is obviously against the law; a prosecutor and judge have to work completely independant of one another. This prosecutor’s conduct is in violation with all ethical rules and also with the US Constitution. Even the new prosecutor on Clinton’s case agrees that the case should be reopened. We are now waiting on the Court of Criminal Appeals to make a decision. Clinton has been on death row for 17 years for two crimes that he did not commit and was almost executed in 2017. Not only is Clinton innocent, but he was denied a fair trial to prove his innocence. Justice has been denied for too long.
