Troy Anthony Davis was convicted and sentenced to death in 1991 for the murder of Savannah, Georgia police officer Mark Allen MacPhail. Through years of appeals he has maintained his innocence and his case has attracted international attention and support. On August 17, 2009, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Davis must have the opportunity to present his claims of innocence in a court of law. This surprising action by the Supreme Court is a stunning victory for a dedicated legal team and a determined family. Join Davis’ sister Martina Correia and attorneys Kathleen Behan and Jason Ewart in a conversation moderated by Professor Charles Ogletree.
