Frances Newton: Time to Texecution Growing Shorter
Ms. Newton's habeas sought to raise three independent claims:
- The first is that she is actually innocent, and that had she received effective counsel, no rational juror would have convicted her.
- The second is that she is actually innocent of the sentence (meaning she should not have been sentenced to death).
- Thirdly, her conviction and sentence violate the due process clause, because the State has destroyed potentially exculpatory evidence
