Updated & Corrected Info On Death Row Prisoner Cory Maye

Five days ago I posted on Cory Maye and his unbelievable conviction and death sentence for shooting a policeman who crashed in his door at 11 pm at night while he was sleeping in his room with his 18-month old daughter.

Today, The Agitator has put up a corrected summary of the facts in Maye's case.

A key point that was earlier misrepresented is that the police did have a warrant for Maye's apartment....but without his name on it.

The facts still speak for themselves and they speak quite loudly in Maye's favor (at least they do to me!). Click the link and decide for yourself. If you decide that an injustice was done, you can contact Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour to demand a rehearing of the case or the extension of a full pardon.

Governor Barbour's address is:

P.O. Box 139 Jackson, MS 39205
Phone: 601.359.3150 or 1-877-405-0733
