Lamarr Monson is Granted a New Trial!

Written by Bill Branham

lamarrmonsonThrough the ongoing work of Dave Moran and the Michigan Innocence Clinic, Lamarr Monson was granted a new trial. It remains to be seen if the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office will appeal the ruling, proceed with a new trial or drop the charges. Dave Moran believes they have an extremely good case based on what they presented in a series of hearing seeking a new trial. His hope, based on this, is that they will simply drop the charges and allow Lamarr Monson to go free. Kym Worthy's office, though, does not have a good track record when it comes to admitting that they wrongfully convicted a person, despite mounting evidence to innocence.

For a good overall understanding of the case, Elisha Anderson's January 30 article is a good way to begin: Man convicted of killing 12-year-old Detroit girl gets new trial
