Cory Maye To Be Released

Former Mississippi death row inmate Cory Maye will be released shortly, after he and prosecutors agreed to a plea-deal that reduces his conviction to manslaughter, with a sentence of ten years (which he has already served).

Great congratulations to Radley Balko for getting this case on the radar screen, and also to my colleagues at Covington & Burling, which took up Maye's post-conviction defense.
