9780813819761: Benefit of Law: The Murder Case of Ernest Triplett

From the book's inner book flap: "A fascinating look at how criminal trials and appeals work, the story of Triplett's long campaign for freedom illuminates a number of fundamental, but frequently misunderstood aspects of our criminal justice system---the crucial importance of lawyers for both sides, especially in cases involving 'unpopular' crimes; the usefulness of procedural rules that may seem like legal 'technicalities'; the function of 'habeas corpus' proceedings in providing review of the fairness of convictions even after all regular avenues of appeal have been completed; the potential for incorrect results, even in cases in which the evidence appears indisputable; and the impact of the death penalty in cutting off the system's ability to correct mistakes."
