Colo. Supreme Court to Hear Lisl Auman Case

The Colorado Supreme Court will hear oral argument Thursday in the Lisl Auman case. From a press release received today:

In a case that could set national precedent for felony murder, the Colorado Supreme Court is set to hear arguments in the case of Lisl Auman who is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

“Nothing less than the future of American jurisprudence is at stake in Lisl’s case because our system has never before knowingly punished someone for a crime they had no intention or desire to commit,” said Gerald Goldstein, former President of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Lisl was in police custody at the time of the crime. We write more about her case today over at the new group blog American Street . Visit Lisl's website for more details. Her case is one of a grave injustice. We hope the oral arguments go well.
