Judge Says Prosecution Drove Up Costs in Atlanta Courthouse Death Penalty Case
As TChris wrote last night, retired Georgia Judge Hilton Fuller, who once presided over the death penalty trial of accused Atlanta courthouse shooter Brian Nichols, spoke at an American Bar Association conference yesterday and said the prosecution in that case was responsible for driving the costs up.
The Nichols trial should be used to shine a light on how the prosecution's case affects the cost of an adequate defense in death penalty cases, Fuller told an American Bar Association panel on capital cases.
''There's a relationship between what the prosecution spends and what the defense needs,'' Fuller said.
