Herman's writ seeking a new trial was denied late Friday afternoon by the Louisiana State Supreme Court with no comment from the Court. The denial was no surprise to the A3 legal team and supporters who have become accustomed to injustice at the hands of State and local officials. Although disappointed, Herman, Albert and Robert remind supporters that Herman's case can now begin new life as a habeas petition in Federal Court--the same judicial process that already succeeded in overturning Albert's conviction.
This news is added to the fact that Herman has been placed in Extended Administrative Lockdown for the next 90 days for reasons yet unknown--overall this makes for a rotten way to spend a 68th birthday, even after 37+ in solitary. Send Herman some love and let him know we're here for the long haul. Write to:
