ANOTHER TWIST; ANOTHER TURN

Long time and careful readers of this blog will recall our reporting on the strange case of Kareem Bellamy. Bellamy was convicted of murder in New York. While serving his prison sentence, his attorneys obtained statements from one Michael Green confessing to the murders Bellamy was convicted of. A motion was filed and the conviction was overturned and Bellamy was released. 

We then reported on the fact that it appeared that Green had faked the confession and in fact Bellamy might not be innocent.  Motions were filed to re-instate Bellamy's conviction. 

Now comes word that Green, who testified for the prosecution last week, was arrested yesterday for breaking into a woman's apartment and robbing her at knife point. 

The title of the post links to the NY Times article. 

The saga continues. 

Big game for the Fins tomorrow.

Rump- what a night last Night!!!!
My brother who is a general practice lawyer from Sheboygan, WI (which happens to be Kenny Weisman's home town) always flies in for the yearly FOAM PARTY. This year did not disappoint. There my brother and I were, covered in foam, with 6 foot super models draped all over all us!!!! It was quite a site. It was quite a foam party. Thanks Kenny.
