1974 rape conviction tossed over evidence issues; attorneys seek …

A state district court judge has overturned Wilbert Jones’ 1974 conviction in the abduction and rape of a Baton Rouge nurse, saying “highly favorable” evidence was withheld from the defense.

Attorneys for Jones filed a motion in court Tuesday seeking their client’s immediate and unconditional release from prison in light of Judge Richard Anderson’s ruling in the decades old case. Failing that, they argued, Jones should be allowed to post a minimal bail.

The East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney’s Office, however, said they will ask the Louisiana Supreme Court to review Anderson’s ruling in Jones’ case.

Emily Maw, the director of Innocence Project New Orleans, which represents Jones, said in an interview that an appeal would be a waste of taxpayer money.

“This case has been an unthinkable tragedy for Wilbert Jones and his family,” she said. “Nobody can undo this tragedy, but the court can and should end it right now and

‘Making a Murderer’ Case: Avery Attorneys Say New Evidence Warrants New Trial

Attorneys for a Wisconsin man convicted of homicide in a case featured on the Netflix series “Making A Murderer” are asking a circuit court to reconsider a prior ruling rejecting a request for a new trial. 

The motion for reconsideration filed on behalf of Steven Avery in Manitowoc County Monday says the latest request is based on new evidence and legal errors. 

A judge earlier this month rejected Avery’s request for a new trial, saying his attorneys failed to establish any grounds to warrant a new trial. Avery was sentenced to life in prison for the 2005 slaying of Teresa Halbach, a 25-year-old photographer. Avery had argued that his conviction was based on planted evidence and false testimony.

Some evidence cited in the latest motion includes claims that witnesses gave false testimony at the original trial.

“We have additional test results and witness affidavits,” Avery’s attorney Kathleen
