Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry Sides With Exoneree in Fight for Wrongful Imprisonment Compensation
"The governor recoiled at the prosecutorial misconduct that deprived [Alfred Dewayne Brown] and his lawyers of the exculpatory evidence that would ultimately set him free," said an amicus letter by former Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry is urging the Texas Supreme Court to side with a wrongfully convicted man who’s fighting top Republican leaders over state compensation for his wrongful imprisonment.
In an amicus letter filed Thursday, Perry, who resigned last fall as U.S. energy secretary, gave his opinion on the case of Alfred Dewayne Brown, who appealed to the Supreme Court after the Texas Office of the Comptroller denied his request for compensation for the 12 years he spent on death row.
