Conner asks the NC Supreme Court to Grant DNA Test

After being denied a DNA test by the Superior Court following the District Attorney's objection to a re-test, the case is now in the hands of the NC Supreme Court. The position opposing a DNA test has now been adopted by Attorney General Roy Cooper's office. Perhaps Mr. Cooper was hesitant to interfere when the litigation was being pursued locally, but why continue to be so obstinate now that it's in front of the Supreme Court and it's his office filing the papers?

Jerry Conner's execution is scheduled for three weeks from today. There's still time to get results from a DNA test without delaying the execution.

Use the Take Action menu now. Both the Governor and the Attorney General have the power to allow for testing and prevent injury to the public's confidence in our criminal justice system.
