Isn’t America great? The land of the free…the home of the brave! Our democratic government gives everyone their innocence until proven guilty. It’s truly a beautiful life here.
But, what happens when someone’s life is taken, another person is found guilty of that crime, then a mere technicality could potentially get their sentence revoked? Is that justice?
Well, according to lawyers for Jerry Buck Inman, who was convicted for the sexual assault and murder of Clemson University student Tiffany Souers, it is.
They are taking an appeal to the South Carolina Supreme Court on Wednesday that asks that Inman’s sentence be revoked based on allegations that a key witness for the prosecution was intimated into testifying.
A report by WYFF says Inman’s appeal centers on the testimony given by a social worker who was supposed to speak as to Inman’s mental health problems.
Dr. Marti Loring said she felt intimidated, but a judge refused to declare a mistrial or remove solicitor Bob Ariail and his prosecutors off the case.
Ariail says Loring could face charges for practicing without a license.
A lot is obviously up in the air at this point. But, we’ll continue to follow the case and hopefully see that our America which we love so much will find a way to give Tiffany Souers her much deserved justice regardless of loopholes in the law.
