Ed Graf

Just a short post tonight; this is a really long, but very worthwhile about the trial of Ed Graf. He was convicted of murdering his two stepsons in 1988, then received a new trial in 2014. Although the second trial resulted in a plea deal, the article gives a good look at how the appeals system works, as well as the how the junk science used in so many arson convictions is being overturned.

Check it out, it's worth your time: http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/jurisprudence/2015/08/ed_graf_arson_trial_texas_granted_him_a_new_trial_would_modern_forensic.html
