USA: 'Unconscionable and unconstitutional’: Troy Davis facing fourth execution date in two years
Troy Anthony Davis has been on death row in Georgia for nearly 18 years for the murder of a police officer he maintains he did not commit. Given that the testimony of only two of the state’s numerous witnesses who testified against Troy Davis at his trial remains intact, there are serious questions surrounding the reliability of his conviction. The case of Troy Davis is a reminder of the legal hurdles that death row inmates must overcome in the USA in order to obtain remedies in the appeal courts.
