The UA-Huntsville professor Amy Bishop murder case is a perfect example of a judicial out of control. Why are her lawyers being paid a half-million dollars for an open-and-shut case?
When she made her plea agreement to escape the death penalty, she waived her rights to an appeal. She should now stand before a judge and be sentenced - problem solved, but her lawyer says this is a complex case. How so, when she killed three innocent people in cold blood because she was refused tenure.
She and her lawyers are making a mockery of the system as they deplete the state’s legal fund, defending a client who has already pleaded guilty.
