Mumia Update

From the July-August 2011 issue of News & Letters:

Mumia Update

This past spring, Mumia Abu-Jamal’s 1982 death sentence was, again, ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. In violation of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1988 decision in Mills v. Maryland, the jury was improperly led to believe that only evidence on which the jury unanimously agreed could be considered to reach a sentence other than death. Early in 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the 1988 sentence, making it again possible that Mumia could be executed, and turned the case back to the Appeals Court for review. Abu-Jamal is a former member of MOVE and is on death row for allegedly killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981.
