For decades Steve Hayne was the go to guy for Mississippi prosecutors like Forrest Allgood of Noxubee County. Both have a long record of involvement in wrongful convictions and questionable theories and opinions on a defendant’s guilt. Allgood has the state record for death penalty convictions. The MS Atty General Jim Hood refuses to take responsibility for keeping them on the job. No surprise considering his cynical attitudes towards proving actual innocence. Go to the Mississippi Innocence Project. Their front page pictures two victim’s of Forrest Allgood’s and Steve Hayne’s little partnership.
Here is a PBS/Frontline report on Hayne.
