|July 5, 2004 - The Alabama prosecutor
(which is now the State Assistant Attorney General, Clay Crenshaw), says
the evidence of innocence that Patrick Swiney's expert witnesses provided
in Patrick's Rule 32 Habeas Corpus petition, filed on August
13, 2004 is insufficient, not "new", and that the results are
biased in favor of Mr. Swiney. Mr. Swiney's lawyer will be filing
an appellate brief on July 9, 2004 in the Alabama Court of Appeals.
This appeal brief refutes the Court's compliance with the Mr. Crenshaw's
contention that Mr. Swiney's case is not worth granting a Habeas Corpus
hearing based on "newly discovered" evidence of actual innocence, no matter
how valid the evidence may be. In effect Judge Al D. Crowson is saying
to the public that he condones favoritism in Alabama's courts.
On June 22, 2004, Attorney General, Troy King made a promise to the people in Alabama that we want to ensure he keeps, for the way the State Attorney General's office is treating Patrick Swiney's case is even worse than Mr. King's concern about keeping death row cases on the books for 25 years before an execution can take place. The State of Alabama has kept an innocent man from freedom and subjected him to continuous physical, mental, emotional, medical and spiritual abuse for 16 years. Let us watch the case of Patrick Swiney to see if Attorney General Troy King walks his talk....
