Prominent Attorney Interview Sheds Light on Porter Case...

Local media is responding to the release of Alstory Simon from prison with a false face of befuddlement. If they addressed the evidence--which they won't do--it's obvious Porter was guilty and Simon innocent.

The attorney representing the detectives who were sued by Porter's attorneys after Porter was released was forced to confront the facts of the case. This attorney, Walter Jones, initially was going to settle, assuming Porter was innocent in the wake of all the media frenzy that Porter was wrongly convicted. Then Jones sat down with the detectives and reviewed the evidence. His compelling description of how his mind changed and his decision to essentially re-try Porter in the civil case shows clearly how anyone who confronts the facts of the case can see Porter was guilty. And if Porter was guilty, then Simon is innocent.
