ADAA Calls on AG To Apologize
(2007-09-17)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Alabama District Attorneys Association has called on Attorney General Troy King to apologize to the local prosecutor in Shelby County in a dispute over a death sentence.
King has stripped Shelby County District Attorney Robby Owens from the case after Owens supported reducing a young death row inmate's sentence. Now the state district attorney's group has released a statement saying Owens was properly acting as a minister of justice.
The group, which has called a news conference, says King's action was hypocritical and vindictive.
