Ryan should never stop filing appeals until he's released. Being innocent should count for something in the judicial system.

Ryan will be out whether it's in 6 months, a year, 3 years or 6 years. Look at how this case demonstrably elicits unanimous opinion from fair-minded people. There is no evidence left against him and ALL of the circumstantial evidence points away from him. There is absolutely no good reason to believe Chuck's trial testimony. Outside of Chuck's wacky druggy dreams, there is absolutely no evidence to support the idea that Ryan and Chuck committed the crime anymore than anyone else at a bar in Columbia on Halloween night.

I think Mr. Ferguson will find out that he is done. Judge Green didn't like this little bastard and has ruled in such a way that it is essentially appeal proof. Ferguson's problem is that he didn't wait long enough. Most of these guys with the innocence project bullshit cheerleaders who get out have served at least 15 years, so the courts can take the pragmatic approach that they haved served most of a soft life sentence anyway and its been 3 x forever (5 years is forever in the law because no one remembers more than years) so nobody cares when they let them out. Luckily for justice in this case its still pretty fresh and so they have Ferguson's number and all the powers that be are close enough geographically that they can drink together and exchange the necessary info.
