If he is facing the death penalty he should be afforded the best possible defense. Im sure hes guilty but innocent ppl have been put to death before, thats why hes allowed to tap into a state fund. What disgusts me the most is the fact that even if found guilty and sentenced to death he will never fry, Illinois' death penalty is on hold and no longr practiced. So whats the point of even going for death? All their doing is allowing cc to get a free defense.
