The Interfaith Mission Service is a cooperative of congregations and individuals working to co-create a Beloved Community.
“Bryan Stevenson, executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) which represents Hinton, said he is ‘thrilled’ to see the case resolved ‘the way I think it should be resolved.’ Stevenson said he feels the new tests exonerate Hinton. ‘We think it certainly is evidence of innocence. … We have never doubted Mr. Hinton’s innocence,’ he said.
EJI, which took over the appellate work on Hinton’s case in 1998, was ‘frustrated’ by the unwillingness of the Alabama Attorney General’s Office for more than a decade to acknowledge mistakes were made and to have the bullets re-tested, Stevenson said. Defense experts had testified in 2002 that they didn’t see a match between the bullets or gun. Hinton also passed a polygraph test which was ruled inadmissible at trial.
State prosecutors never questioned or disputed those defense experts, Stevenson said. ‘They just ignored it and I think that’s even more troubling,’ he said.”

The Big Picture – One Huntsville Diversity Dinner
5:00 – 7:00 – Huntsville Madison County Public Library
The BIG Picture’ is a comprehensive planning process for the City of Huntsville.

Considerations run the gamut, including land use, transportation, parks and recreation, infrastructure, workforce development, education, quality of life initiatives, and economic development/diversification. A key component in a comprehensive planning effort is community outreach, and the BIG Picture seeks to be as broad and deep as possible in engaging the community.Read More
