I have just found out that the man who was convicted of shooting my dad and killing his boss in a robbery nearly 10 years ago has been granted a retrial. The reason, apparently, is because his family members testified against him.
I feel for my dad. Having all this dredged up again must be awful. Going through the trial and testifying the first time was traumatic for him, and now he will have to go through it again. And now there is the possiblility that the man who was convicted of the crime in the first instance may now walk free, with his name cleared, to boot.
The justice system sucks.
