FASCINATING AND IN DEPTH REPORT ABOUT CORRUPTION AND COVERUP IN MISSISSIPPI THAT HAS POTENTIALLY SENT A VAST NUMBER OF INNOCENTS TO PRISON, AND ALLOWED THE GUILTY TO GO FREE.
Mississippi officials have thus far resisted calls for a thorough review of Hayne and West's work. In particular, the Mississippi Supreme Court has shown little concern over the possibility that Hayne and West may have put an untold number of innocents behind the razor wire at Parchman penitentiary. Neither has Attorney General Jim Hood, whose office continues to defend convictions won primarily on the testimony one or both of the men have given on the witness stand. To concede there's a problem would implicate many state officials who used the two men during tenures as prosecutors. It would also open hundreds, perhaps thousands of cases to review.
