Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison, 3.2.16
S.B. 237 filed by Senator Brewbaker R. Montgomery and cosponsored by Senators Hightower, Whatley, Stutts, Marsh, Reed, Ward, Smitherman and Figures, made it out of committee by a 10-0 vote. It now moves to the full Senate. Our thanks and appreciation to Stephen Stetson, a lawyer of Alabama Arise for his skilled presentation in favor of the bill and the Innocence panel which he stated was needed “as recognition of human frailty in the justice system”.
